Peace Process, MoU at grave risk- LTTE

[TamilNet, Saturday, 08 May 2004, 13:00 GMT]
"It is apparent that the killers have all the assistance from the SLA and we request of you to advise the [Sri Lanka] government that if the SLA continues to act in this manner the entire peace process and the cease fire agreement are being placed in heavy risk and dire consequence have to be faced," said Leader of the Political Wing of the LTTE in a letter to the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM), pointing out to the recent murders of two LTTE cadres in Batticaloa district.

The full text of the letter published in LTTE's Peace Secretariat website follows:

"Two LTTE members, traveling by a motorbike from Batticaloa town to Chenkaladi around 12 noon yesterday 6th of May 2004 were shod dead at a location called Thannamunai. Situated 250 meters on both sides of the location are two SLA sentry points. The killers have not been apprehended.

"As stated by us in our communication this appears to be a continuing trend and we are highly perturbed over this. It is apparent that the killers have all the assistance from the SLA and we request you to advise the government that if the SLA continues to act in this manner the entire peace process and the cease fire agreement are being placed in heavy risk and dire consequence have to be faced. We are afraid that it may become impossible for us to be patient onlookers of this cavalier fashion in which killing are being carried out.

"We trust that the SLMM will explore all avenues of investigations and institute remedial and preventive action. Urgent steps must be taken to conduct an in-depth inquiry and bring to book the culprits."
