Renovating Heroes’ Resting Home not illegal – Court rules

The Magistrate Court of Killinochi has ruled that it is not illegal to renovate Kanagapuram Heroes’ Resting Home.

Delivering his judgment on the case filed by the relatives of Tamil Eelam National Heroes, Magistrate Anandarajah, however, said the renovation of the resting home should be undertaken with the permission of Killinochi Divisional Secretariat.

The Sri Lankan government of the former President Mahinda Rajapaksa destroyed all of the Heroes’ Resting Homes in Tamil Eelam, bulldozing the tombs of Tamil freedom fighters.
