Mr. V. Pirapaharan, the leader of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) participated in the twenty third memorial anniversary of Charles Anthony, from Trincomalee, one of the first commanders of the LTTE who died in 1983. Mr. Pirapaharan addressed more than a hundred senior level field leaders of two artillery units that completed training. The LTTE leader payed homage to Lt. Seelan, Ananth and other five cadres and awarded merit certificates to the officers who had completed training at an undisclosed location in Vanni Sunday, LTTE sources said.

Experienced LTTE cadres with many years of field experience were selected for the training programme conducted by Northern Front Forces Training Academy and Major Roy Training Academy, producing them into officers capable of coordinating artillery and mortar operations, LTTE sources said.

The first regular regiment and later an special force of the LTTE, Charles Antony Regiment, formed in 1991, completed 15 years on July 15.
