The Navy has informed the family of the founder of the JVP, Rohana Wijeweera to vacate the quarters which they have been occupied for years.

Army Media Spokesman Brigadier Jayanath Jayaweera told our news team that the Navy has informed them in writing to vacate the quarters before 1st of October.

JVP leader Rohana Wijeweera’s wife Chitrangani Wijeweera and their 6 children surrendered to the Army after Wijeweera was assassinated in 1989.

Later the then government agreed to provide safety for them and detained them in the navy camps in Trincomalee and Welisara. 

The Navy has provided them safety for the last 26 years, and the family was informed to vacate the quarters due to prevailing peaceful environment in the country.

JVP General Secretary Tilvin Silva said that he came to know about the incident after it is published in the media.

Meanwhile former JVP leader Somawansa Amarasinghe says that Rs10 million had been reserved to buy a land and a house for Rohana Wijeweera’s family.

Our news team contacted JVP General Secretary Tilvin Silva to comment on the statement made by Somawansa Amarasinghe.

However, Chithrangani Wijeweera rejected the statement by the JVP leaders who say that they are helping Wijeweera’s family.  She told our news team had the JVP helped them in the past, her family would not be in such a situation today.  She said that 5 of her children are staying with her in the quarters provided by the Navy at its Welisara camp.
