Did not even know that Batticaloa had a historic Dutch fort. Great that the nation that wrote up the human rights violation is growing ties with Sri Lanka

If they did get a grant , why cannot they at least get a couple of laborers to clean the area, up before her visit. ?

It appears cleanliness is not of that importance in Sri Lanka. When one travels and sees archeological sites in other countries , one realizes how well they are looked after and preserved. The first thing is to keep the area clean, which does not cost a fortune.
