SL presidential sibling and Economic ‘Development’ Minister Basil Rajapaksa, has deployed three officials per division in all the three districts of the Eastern Province to monitor the activities of Divisional Secretaries and Village level (GS) officers and all other public officials, informed sources in Batticaloa say. These intelligence operatives, appointed under the ‘Divineguma’ programme, are required to send monthly reports with intelligence input to colonial Colombo. The ‘civil’ intelligence officers are tasked to oversee the process of structural genocide against Eezham Tamils.
Tamil officials who act against illegal landgrab by the Sinhalese in the border villagers of Batticaloa district are transferred away to other areas following the reports by the new civil intelligence operatives of Basil Rajapaksa.
Some of the Tamil officials have also been threatened over the telephone by the ‘Divineguma squad’, which monitors all the public activities, including the conduct of the ‘government servants’ at public meetings.
The squad comprises of two Sinhalese and a pro SL government Muslim in most of the divisions.
The activities of the Tamil public servants have been severely curtailed due to the interventions by the intelligence operatives within each divisional secretariat division.
The entire civil administration in the occupied country of Eezham Tamils is already overseen at provincial level by colonial governors, who are ex-commanders of the SL military.
The Sri Lankan Government Agent (SLGA) of Trincomalee district is also retired Major General of the occupying Sri Lanka Army.
