There is no possibility to return all lands in Northern and Eastern Provinces that are under the military ownership due to security reasons, Secretary to the Ministry of Defence Eng. Karunasena Hettiarachchi said.

At an event where 201 acres of land in Palali High Security Zone, Kankasanthurai and Walikamam were returned to the owners, he said steps will be taken to provide compensations to the owners of these lands that cannot be returned.

Even though 29000 acres, he added, were in high security zones they were returned to the rightful owners. He said only 3000 acres are remaining.
