[TamilNet, Saturday, 06 March 2004, 05:45 GMT]
Liberation Tigers announced today that their Batticaloa-Amparai district commander Karuna has been discharged from the LTTE and has been relieved of official responsibilities. "The Tamil Eelam National leadership has appointed Mr. T. Ramesh as special commander, Mr. Ram as Commander, Mr. Praba as the deputy commander and Mr. Kousalyan as political head of the Batticaloa-Ampara district," said the LTTE statement issued today.

"Mr. Karuna who was commander of Batticaloa-Amparai, instigated by some malicious  elements opposed to the Tamil Eelam liberation struggle, acting traitorously to the Tamil people and the Tamil Eelam national leadership, has planned to secede himself from the Liberation organisation.

"The commanders, divisional heads and cadres under him unable to acquiesce with this traitorous act have refused to comply with his orders and met with the national leadership, explained the ground reality prevailing there.

"In accordance with this, Karuna has been discharged from the Liberation Tigers organisation and relieved from official responsibilities," said the statement.
