The ‘Good Governance’ Government of Maithripala Sirisena is as indifferent to their pleas as the previous government led by the hawkish Rajapaksa, ADALR stated. A document submitted to the Government by the ADALR states that in the Vegamam area of Pottuvil, 450 acres belonging to 140 Muslim families with government permits to cultivate them, were acquired by the Wildlife Preservation Department. These lands were cultivated by these permit holders from 1956 to 1990, and from 2009 to 2011. Between 1990 and 2009, the lands were in the possession of the LTTE which had driven the Muslims out. The Muslims went back to the lands after the war, only to be asked to vacate in two years by the Wildlife Department.In Kiran Kovai and Palayadi Vattai, 503 acres belonging to 250 Muslim families which had been cultivating them from 1976 to 1990 and from 2009 to 2011 had been handed over to the Forest Department. In Kiran-Komari, 885 acres,with permits, cultivated by 177 families from 1960 were included in the forest zone and cultivation was prohibited. Ahamed told Express that the lands, which were seized by the LTTE in the 1980s, subsequently went into the hands of the Sri Lankan army and were then handed over to various government departments such as the Forest or the Archeology Department. The lands are now being used for various purposes including the construction of military camps and settling Sinhalese from outside Ampara district, he said. Muslim farmers in Ampara are pleading with the Government to return 2878 acres of agricultural land which ought to have been given back to them when the 30-year war ended in 2009, the New Indian Express reported.The non-return of these lands has affected 1406 families, who find that the end of the war has brought no relief to them in economic terms, according to K.Nihal Ahamed, Co-ordinator of the Ampara District Alliance for Land Rights (ADALR). The Forest and Wildlife Departments began to lay claims to these lands because much of the area had become a jungle due to neglect in the war years. The repeated plea of the original owners that the lands were cultivable fell on deaf ears.In Ponnanveli, nearly 600 acres, originally in the hands of 176 farmer families from 1948 onwards, were handed over to the Archeology Department or for ‘Holy Land’ development as the area was considered sacred by Sri Lanka’s powerful Buddhist majority.In Ashraff Nagar, 150 acres were taken over by the armed forces or handed over to the Forest Department, affecting 69 farmer families. In Ambanam Oya, 140 acres originally cultivated by 48 families since 1932, were taken over for colonisation by the majority Buddhist community from outside Ampara district. Likewise, Sinhalese colonisation has taken away 96 acres in Keethapaththu affecting 46 families. (Colombo Gazette)

CMC – Guyana Jaguars skipper Leon Johnson made a welcome return to form with a half-century which pulled the five-time reigning champions out of trouble on Friday’s second day of their fifth round contest against Windward Islands Volcanoes.With his side struggling on 25 for two in reply to the hosts’ first innings of 318 at the National Stadium here, Johnson struck a composed unbeaten 65 to steer the innings to the relative safety of 145 for three at the close.The 32-year-old, who made a half-century in his first innings of the season only to gather a mere 77 runs from his last six outings, has struck 11 fours in a knock spanning 122 balls and a shade over 2-½ hours.Crucially, he put on 74 for the third wicket with Test let-hander Shimron Hetmyer who made 32 in his second regional first class appearance in two seasons before gifting his wicket, before adding a further 46 in an unbroken fourth wicket stand with all-rounder Chris Barnwell (28 not out).Keron Cottoy (56) and Shane Shillingford (53) had earlier struck half-centuries as Volcanoes flourished after resuming the day on 212 for six.Unbeaten overnight on 37, Cottoy stretched his seventh wicket stand with Shillingford to 36, hitting 10 fours off 85 balls in just over 1-¾ hours in posting his maiden first class half-century.Once Cottoy perished, Shillingford took responsibility for the innings by anchoring a 57-run, eighth wicket partnership with Sherman Lewis who made 24.All told, Shillingford faced 86 balls in two hours and counted four fours and a six.Left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul led Jaguars’ attack with four for 59 while leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo supported with three for 73.Left-arm seamer Preston McSween (2-43) gave the hosts an excellent start when he removed Chandrapaul Hemraj without scoring with a single run on the board in the fifth over.And when new-ball partner Ray Jordan dislodged Tagenarine Chanderpaul for 11 to a catch at the wicket, Jaguars were collapsing yet again.But Johnson steadied the innings, combining with Hetmyer who lashed four fours in a 39-ball knock before top-edging a pull at McSween and was caught at short mid-wicket.
