TNA MP, M. A. Sumanthiran said that the land which was reported as an army camp, has been illegally acquired by the military, hence the TNA led by its leader R. Sampanthan did not forcefully enter any camp, but ‘visited a private property, legally not acquired by the Army.’

Meanwhile, Sampanthan also met with Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe this morning to complain about the army continuing to forcefully occupy the land of civilians in Kilinochchi.

Over the week, several media reported that Sampanthan, along with other TNA MPs and their supporters had forcefully entered the Paravipachchan camp in Kilinochchi on April 16 without obtaining prior permission from the Army and had remained in the camp for several hours.
