SLN claim of destroying LTTE camp, a fabrication- Elilan

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 02 November 2004, 11:16 GMT]
"The SLN has fabricated the story of destroying a LTTE camp in Palampoddaru area along Trincomalee-Kandy road to justify its false claim that LTTE had constructed several new camps in Trincomalee," Mr. Elilan, LTTE Trincomalee district Political Head tod TamilNet, reacting to media reports Monday that Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) had destroyed a Liberation Tigers camp.

" There is no truth in the SLN's claim. Because the LTTE at no stage had old or new camps in the particular place which is located close to army and navy camps," said Mr.Elilan.

The Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission did not inform the LTTE about the SLN claim that it had located a LTTE camp in Palampoddaru area," Mr.Elilan said.

The SLN in its report said the LTTE camp was destroyed by government troops in the presence of SLMM monitors.

Mr.Elilan Tuesday met with the acting head of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) in Trincomalee regarding the claim of SLN destroying LTTE camp in the presence of SLMM monitors.

SLMM monitors in Trincomalee are reported to have maintained silence when Mr.Elilan pointed out that LTTE had no camps in the particular area before and after ceasefire agreement.
