Government officials in the Vavuniya, Kilinochchi and Mullaitivu districts yesterday said that they get a number of complaints from people who have returned to the country after a lapse of 20- 25 years over the illegal occupation of their lands. Lands taken over by the LTTE were distributed among Mahaveer families by them during the time of the Ceasefire Agreement.
The UNF Government had issued the illegal occupants of these lands official title deeds. An official of the Kilinochchi District Secretariat who wished to remain anonymous told the Daily News that the Government had issued title deeds to the people who occupied these lands illegally during the time when the Ceasefire Agreement was in force. The official said the LTTE considered the people who left the area under their control as traitors.
