Kodikamam Police force entry, search LTTE office

[TamilNet, Monday, 07 March 2005, 17:00 GMT]
The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) Monday evening lodged a complaint with the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) in Jaffna that a group of Sri Lanka Policemen had forcibly entered its Kodikamam Political Office Monday morning around 10.45 a.m. and conducted search operation without informing the SLMM, sources said.

Jaffna district political headquarters of the LTTE in its complaint further said LTTE cadres who were present at that time in the Kodikamam office had told a group of eight policemen who came by foot that they would not be allowed to conduct a search without the presence of the SLMM monitors.

However the policemen forced open the doors of the LTTE office and the doors of the room of the Kodikamam LTTE political head though he was not in the office at that time and conducted a thorough search, LTTE said in the complaint.

Later policemen had left the LTTE office by foot to the Kodikamam police station. From there they got into a police jeep and had proceeded towards Muhamalai, according to an eyewitness at the site, sources said.

LTTE Kodikamam political office and the Kodikamam police station are located along the Kodikamam-Kachchai road, sources said.
