Dec 31, Colombo: Sri Lanka Army has handed over another building that was being used by the security forces to the civilian authority in the Northern Province.

A property, named 'Anthony Pillay' building in the center of Kilinochchi town, earlier leased to the Security Force Headquarters - Kilinochchi (SFHQ-KLN) by the government after humanitarian operations, was released on Thursday (28) symbolically to Governor of Northern Province, Reginald Cooray to be handed back to its legitimate owners.

The income received from the building after it was given on lease in 2011 by the Army for a private company was basically used for civil-military projects until it was again handed to the government to be given back to the owners by the SFHQ-KLN, the Army said.

Major General Ajith Kariyakarawana, Commander, Security Forces-Kilinochchi (SF-KLN) decided to hand over this building back to the government to be in line with the release of private lands and property to their legitimate owners as per the government's policy and the Commander's vision.

On behalf of the Commander SF-KLN, Brigadier Administration and Quartering of SFHQ-KLN, Brigadier Kumara Handunmulla, delivered the documents related to the empty building to the Governor during a brief meeting at the Governor's Office.
