The government says it will continue with High Security Zones (HSZ) in the North to maintain security and in the absence of State land the government will be compelled to use private land situated at strategic locations for this purpose.

Responding to a question posed by a journalist at the Cabinet press briefing today Media Minister Keheliya Rambukwella said that when the US has military bases overseas for security purposes Sri Lanka has a right to have security zones on its own soil to maintain security.

However in April this year EPDP leader Douglas Devananda assured that gradually all the High Security Zones in the Jaffna peninsula will be removed as there is no more a security threat.

Speaking to Daily Mirror online Devananda had recalled that President Mahinda Rajapaksa also has a vision for the people in the Northern Province to experience the same freedom as experienced by the people in the South. (KB)

    THIS MAY SOUND DISSAPPOINTING TO THE TAMILS. BUT THERE ARE TWO SIDES IN A COIN

    if they want to maintain security let them use government land. there are many place in the north where the houses and property are still used by forces even after the war is over. the owners of these property still have no access to those place at least to see the property ( eg. thellippalai HSZ). this is very unfair treatment.

    We need freedom from Devananda not from President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

    This means North will never come back to normal. does this government expect the Tamil people to be homeless forever? stupidity of this government will lead to another uprising by the Tamil people.

    roshan raz Thursday, 15 July 2010 11:08 AM

    tamils of this country will never be allowed to lead a normal , peaceful life . but politicians are talking about equal rights, political solution etc etc.

    Anura Thursday, 15 July 2010 11:29 AM

    Now we know there is no peace in Srilanka, this is what everyone proposed a political solution which lead to removal of HSZ and normal life. defence secretary said many times that all jungles in noth should be occupied by army

    This is not fair, after all government forces are occupying huge area of private property in the HSZ . The owners are not even compensated . Pathetic decision while working out for reconcilliation. The hatred will grow deeper!

    sri lanka is cursed for a long long time ago it will not be in peace MARK MY WORD.

    Upali Friday, 16 July 2010 01:00 PM

    How would you feel if the government kicked you out of your house without paying any componsation?

    Upali Friday, 16 July 2010 01:04 PM

    The Sri Lankan government has no interest in reconciliation
