The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) said today it had told the government that considering the present security situation in the North and the recent Supreme Court ruling there was no longer a necessity for High Security Zones (HSZ).

A TNA delegation comprising party leader R. Sampanthan, Mavai Senathirajah and Suresh Premchandran met a government delegation comprising House Leader and Minister Nimal Siripala De Silva and Sajin Vas Gunawardena.

Mr. Senadhirajah said the TNA drew attention to the fact that the HSZ issue had seriously hampered the re-settlement process with only a few of the displaced people being properly resettled so far.

“We gave the government delegation details about areas where the displaced people can safely be resettled and the number awaiting resettlement. For instance, only 9,000 out of 83,000 IDPs have been resettled in the Valley North. There are six Grama Sevaka Divisions with not a single internally displaced family has been resettled there up to now. Even though I am an MP, I have also not been permitted to visit my home because of this HSZ issue,” Mr. Senathirajah added.

    HSZ is a ruse to keep Tamils terrified for ever.

    RAJIV Saturday, 09 April 2011 07:11 AM

    HSZ are a fake cover up to hold a percentage of land by the government and to make sure they keep a minimum number of Tamils in the north. They want to divide and control. if you want ever lasting peace in mother lanka give the people what is rightfully theirs and don't let history repeat it self over again.

    HSZ is not necessary for the LTTE Tamil terrorists and their backers. It is very necessary for the peace loving Sri Lankans and they will know when it is safe to do away with.

    When it was there and LTTE in existence and you were LTTE proxies - what did you tell then and to the international community, can you remember?

    Ram Saturday, 09 April 2011 04:59 AM
