The Lands near Kilinochchi District Secretariat were purchased by us during LTTE period. Now the Army had handed over these lands to the District Secretariat and they are not allowing us to go into our lands, said the families of former LTTEers.
However the District Secretary said that these lands had been handed over to the secretariat by the Army and if valid documents are submitted they will be considered, and if documents are submitted the dispute will be handed over to the court.
After the war theses lands were occupied by the army and now handed over to the Secretariat. When we went there to clean the lands the Officials asked us to get out of the lands. However these were lands purchased by us during the LTTE period, the families said.
