SL govt service in East means officialising genocidal land grab

The occupying Colombo government has forced the Tamil divisional secretaries in Trincomalee district to comply with its genocidal land grab and Sinhalicisation schemes if they are to retain their jobs, informed civil sources in Trincomalee said. The latest victim to such pressure is the divisional secretary of Trincomalee Town and Gravets division, the sources said alleging that the divisional secretary Ms Sasithevi Jalatheepan has been instructed to identify lands without deeds and to allocate those lands to the occupying Sri Lankan military to set up new camps.

Neither the world establishments in complicity with genocidal State in the island nor the UN officials utter any word on the land grab genocide that is taking place in an accelerated way in the North and East.

The UN Human Rights chief Ms Navanetham Pillay who recently visited the North and East said that legal proof is needed to use the word genocide. She said it without any effort on the part of the UN to investigate the matter. Whether the UN is also ‘forced’ to internationally officialise the land grab genocide that takes place against the country of Eezham Tamils, the civil sources in Trincomalee asked.

Sri Lanka Army has forcibly appropriated the general market of the Trincomalee Urban Council constructed at Power House Road. The general market was appropriated by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) in the year 2006 and is still being used as their camps.

The divisional secretary is unable to voice against continued occupation of the UC market. When questioned on the actions taken to get the lands back from the SL military, the divisional secretary chose to explain that the UC market is situated in a private land.

The Sri Lankan Government Agent of Trincomalee, Major General (retd) T.T.R. De Silva, had earlier instructed the divisional secretary to assist the construction of a Buddhist Vihare close to the Trincomalee Clock Tower and the Fish Market in the heart of Trincomalee city. The civil sources also allege that the divisional secretary was not able convey the sentiments of the people on the construction of Buddhist vihare at Kanniyaa Hot Wells area to the SL military GA of the district.
