More shows at Sri Lanka’s occupying military base in Jaffna

The Sri Lankan military held yet another show at it’s military base in Jaffna last week, despite calls for the army to vacate the privately-owned land on which the camp occupies.

The army decided to hold a bodybuilding competition at the Security Force Headquarters in Palaly, the site of a massive High Security Zone which remains inaccessible to locals and landowners, nine years after the end of the war.

A Sri Lankan soldier won the title of “Mr Jaffna 2018” and awarded a cash prize of Rs. 100,000.

The area remains off limits to locals, who remain in displacement camps, almost three decades after their displacement.
