The Sri Lankan State, which has been trading human rights with the West and ports with China for completing the structural genocide on the occupied country of Eezham Tamils, has now signed a US$1.43 billion deal with China Communications Construction to build a port facility with a 99-year-lease on a 230 hectares reclaimed land in Colombo, Sri Lanka Ports Authority chairman Priyath Wickrama has announced. “The Chinese firm will be given 50 hectares of reclaimed land and the construction project, schemed to start in September will last for 39 months,” said a report by Latvia-based Transport Weekly on Monday.

The port facility will become a ‘city’ with eco-parks, residential areas, offices and shopping malls, the report further said.

“The site is next to the main Port of Colombo, close to Shangri-La Hotels Lanka, a unit Hong Kong-listed Shangri-La Asia, which is building a 500-room hotel.”
