SL Navy deploys Sinhala extremist BBS to keep Tamils away from Champoor

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 02 June 2015, 22:39 GMT]
On the invitation by the occupying Sri Lanka Navy in Trincomalee, Sinhala Buddhist extremist monks belonging to Bodu Bala Sena (Buddhist Power Force) have been exerting pressure on the Sri Lankan Police in Moothoor to keep the uprooted Tamils away from their lands in Champoor, informed sources in Trincomalee said. The BBS has also been exerting pressure on the Sri Lankan Gateway Industries (SLGI) to file complaints with the SL Police to maintain the status quo of occupation until the final verdict is issued on the on-going court case.

The BBS monks visiting Champoor have taken photographs of Tamil landowners cleaning their lands and handed over these to the SLGI as documentary evidence to be submitted to the courts stating to argue that the SL police has failed to ‘protect’ the property of SLGI before a final verdict is issued by the court.

The SL police have earlier informed the courts that the people have been only accessing their lands during the daytime.

The uprooted people are now being instructed by the SL police not to access their lands till the court case is over.

In the meantime, Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarians R. Sampanthan, M.A. Sumanthiran and Suresh Premachandran, are under criticism for compelling the protesting people to abandon their protest.

The TNA parliamentarians have given false assurances to the people that they could go back to their lands, the uprooted people complain.
