Pier for Fishermen will not be constructed in Keerimalai, Navy Commander assures Mawai

Pier for Fishermen will not be constructed in Keerimalai, Navy Commander assures Mawai

The Navy Commander met me in Parliament and told me that the proposed fishermen’s pier at Keerimalai will not be constructed, said Mawai Senathyrasa, leader of ITAK.

Keerimalai is a sacred area and it is not acceptable to build docking facilities for Navy or fishermen. I have clarified this matter with the Navy Commander and the Ministry of Defence. The Navy Commander metme on the 27th in Parliament and informed me that he had stopped the construction of the pier. The Secretary of Defence Ministry also had made spot visit and he also is not in favour of a pier being built at Keerimali, it is learnt, he said.

I have further told them if they wish to undertake activities like this,  they may do so at KKS Harbour area.
