Army opens yet another holiday resort in Jaffna

The Sri Lankan Army once again stepped into the realm of civilian life, by opening up a new holiday resort in Chundilkulam, in the Jaffna peninsula.

The new resort is located by Chundikulam Bird Sanctuary and was opened by Commander Security Forces Jaffna Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe, with its inauguration being announced on the Sri Lankan Army website.

The Army currently runs another resort in the Jaffna peninsula, the “Thalasevana Holiday Resort” located inside the Valikamam North High Security Zone, the largest in Jaffna having been established in 1987.

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
