Colonel Pathuman speaks to TamilNet

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 09 March 2004, 14:25 GMT]
"I am keeping fine," Colonel Pathuman, Trincomalee district military commander of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) told TamilNet Tuesday evening by telephone from Vanni. He appealed to Tamil people not to believe in rumours spread through State media. His comment followed the news report of the State run Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation (SLBC) that he had been killed in Vanni.

"I usually meet our national leader once in every three months and discuss several things. As a part of my routine visit I have come to Vanni," Colonel Pathuman told TamilNet.

"We inform the Tamils that the news reported by State media about Colonel Pathuman is completely untrue. Tamils should be on alert that they are not to be misled by such mischievous and malicious reports," said the LTTE statement.
