[TamilNet, Tuesday, 13 December 2005, 11:53 GMT]
Members of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) met with representatives of the Liberation Tigers in the Puliyankulam office of the LTTE 5 p.m. Monday and again at 10 a.m. Tuesday. The discussions centered on the disappearance of Sinnathamby Ganeshalingam alias Farook, a senior cader of PLOTE on Monday 1.30 p.m. Vavuniya. Vavuniya district Political Head of the LTTE, Gnanam, said that he had told the SLMM that LTTE has no involvement in the reported abduction.

"The reported abduction took place in the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) controlled area of Vavuniya and the responsibility for apprehending the abductors lies with the SLA and Sri Lanka Police," Gnanam told the SLMM. He had told the SLMM that if the abductors are hiding in the LTTE controlled areas he will take constructive steps to apprehend them.

Mr Gnanam also said that the three youths arrested by the SLA in connection with the abduction have no links to the LTTE and that they are civilians from Sasthrikulankulam. The youths were arrested in the Sasthrikulankulam area when they were returning to their homes in a van, Mr Gnanam told the SLMM.

He also noted that the SLA has claimed that they arrested the youths in Kidachuri area.

The van belonged to a resident of Sasthrikulankulam, Mr Gnanam told the SLMM.
