Mullikulam still without basic facilities two years on

The people of Mullikulam who resettled in their land after months of protest continue to suffer without basic facilities, two years after resettling.

Mullikulam residents expressed anger at their complete neglect by the Sri Lankan government, stating they did not even have proper shelter and were at the mercy of wild elephant attacks.

They said  they have also not been provided electricity or drinking water and that especially women were affected by the lack of sanitation.

Meanwhile the residents noted that Sri Lankan navy personnel stationed in Mullikulam were living in luxury houses built on civilian’s properties.

We need your support

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
