Trinco mourns deaths of LTTE cadres
[TamilNet, Tuesday, 12 July 2005, 10:11 GMT]
"The ceasefire now in operation has become a question mark because of the complicity and collusion of a section of the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) with paramilitaries in attacking unarmed LTTE cadres doing political work in army controlled areas," said Mr.S.Elilan, LTTE Trincomalee district political head Monday evening at the meeting held in Trincomalee esplanade to pay last respects to LTTE cadres killed in the Sunday Chelvanayakapuram attack, sources said.
The government has a duty according to the ceasefire agreement to provide security to unarmed LTTE political cadres who are engaged in political activities in the army-controlled areas. The government has failed in its obligation to provide such security, said Mr.Elilan.
Mr.Elilan said, "We are ready for war if it is thrusted on us against our commitment to find a permanent political solution to the Tamil national question."
Mr.R.Sampanthan, Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentary group leader said the government is not showing any interest to safeguard the present peace environment. A section in the government security forces is working hard to derail the peace process.
Mr.V.Vigneswaran, President of the Trincomalee District Tamil Peoples Forum
(TDTPF) also spoke.
