The occupying Sri Lanka Army (SLA) in Ki’linochchi district has instructed the Sri Lankan Government Agent (SLGA) of the district to permanently hand over 6 acres of lands already encroached by the 65-2 division of the SLA at Aanaivizhunthaan-ku’lam GS area of Karaichchi division. The land, which is owned by a rehabilitation organisation for disabled persons, is located 10 km southwest of Ki’linochchi town.
The facility was functioning before the war with a technical training centre for disabled people and a secretariat of the organisation in the land, which has been grabbed by the SLA.
The SLA has been refusing to hand over the lands to the disabled people’s rehabilitation organisation, despite the repeated appeals made by the organisation.
Now, the SLGA of the Ki’linochchi district has been instructed by the top brass of the SLA to hand over the lands permanently to the SLA, informed sources at the District Secretariat of Ki’linochchi told TamilNet.
