[TamilNet, Tuesday, 17 April 2001, 14:57 GMT]
The Pt. Pedro Urban Council passed a resolution Tuesday that the Sinhala extremist party, the Sihala Urumaya (SU) should be banned. Mr.Mark Kumanan of the Eelam People's Democratic Party (EPDP) proposed the resolution, which was adopted unanimously by the council. The EPDP member said that the Sihala Urumaya should be banned because it is attempting to scuttle peace talks to settle the ethnic conflict. The Sihala Urumaya is a racist anti Tamil group, Mr. Kumanan told the council.
The Pt. Pedro Urban Council is run by the People's Liberation Organization of Tamil Eelam (PLOTE).
The chairman of the council Mr. S. Kennedy presided at the meeting.
