People’s Alliance for Land Rights filed a complaint to the Human Rights Commission today, requesting to implement the cabinet paper with regard to returning of the lands which were acquired from the Paanama area in Ampara, to their respective owners.

The organization shows that 1220 acres of lands have been acquired in 2009 and 2010, for building international conference centre and a tourist hotel.

In addition, there are buildings which belong to the Navy and the Army in the same area.

However, a cabinet decision was taken in last February to return all the lands except 25 acres, to its original owners
 
Member of the organization Sajeewa Chaamikara told our news team that he has lodged a complaint to the Human Rights commission saying that the relevant cabinet decision has not been implemented so far.
