Lands in Jaffna to be released by December

Security forces have pledged to release several lands acquisitioned for defence purposes in the Jaffna district, back to their respective owners by the 31st of December.

The decision was reached during a special discussion held at the office of the District Secretariat under the patronage of the District Secretary Nagalingam Wedanayagam.

President Maithripala Sirisena recently issued directives to release as many lands as possible to the public in the North before the 31st of December.

Accordingly the President’s Office issued directives to the relevant officials in writing to carry out the necessary procedures in this regard.
