Trinco LTTE political activists threatened by soldiers- Elilan

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 24 May 2005, 17:20 GMT]
Mr.S.Elilan, Trincomalee district political head of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) Tuesday lodged a complaint with the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission in the Trincomalee district that a group of soldiers of the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) had threatened two cadres of the LTTE when they were engaged in political activities in Orr's Hill area, a suburb in the east port town Tuesday afternoon, sources said.

Mr.Elilan requested the SLMM to take prompt steps and to ensure safety for the LTTE activists who are doing political work compliant to the ceasefire agreement.

Mr.Elilan further said army soldiers rounded up two LTTE members Mr.Kuperan and Mr.Yaso when they were in Orr's Hill area and ordered them to leave the place immediately. The soldiers further threatened them with placing pistols on their heads, Elilan said.

"We would be forced to withdraw from doing political work if the SLA soldiers continue to harass and intimidate LTTE activists for no reason," Mr.Elilan told SLMM officials in Trincomalee.
