The Valli North people have accused the army of destroying and razing to ground several schools and churches which were located within the HSZ of the Valli North and that, they have put up at least one tourist resort and operating it on these lands.

The people of Vali North had indicated this in a letter they have written to California-based think tank Oakland Institute, requesting their help in returning to their own lands.

Written last February, this letter has been included in a research report under the title of, "Waiting to return home: Continued Plight of the IDPs in Post- War Sri Lanka", published today, Tuesday, by Oakland Organization

People have expressed fears in this letter that, the lands that had not been released may had been earmarked for building such recreational hotels.
