The World Council of Churches exposes the extent of the permanent military occupation of the Sri Lanka’s Northern Province after the end of the war.

The reports indirectly expose many of the false claims made by the Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapakse and his government over resettlement of displaced persons, rebuilding infrastructure and rehabilitation.

The report deals with the military’s increasing economic role, including the “controlling [of] land.” The report also reveals the extreme poverty of much of the largely Tamil population and the continuing distress faced by those who have been resettled.

There is a Sri Lankan soldier for every four Tamil people in North and Tamils are still struggling for the peace and basic rights, it further added.
