A member of the EPDP , a paramilitary group that works with the Sri Lankan armed forces in Sri Lanka’s northeast, has sought asylum from the Liberation Tigers in Jaffna, military sources in the northern town said Friday. The LTTE’s media co-coordinator, Mr. Daya Master, confirmed that a member of the paramilitary was given asylum in Kilinochchi. The EPDP is a close ally of President Kumaratunga.
Mr. Daya Master did not reveal the identity of the EPDP member.
However, he said that the person would meet the press at the LTTE’s media co-ordination centre in Kilinochchi Saturday.
