More LTTE cadres arrive in Vavuniya, Mannar

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 01 May 2002, 14:53 GMT]
Twenty-four cadres from the Liberation Tigers' political section entered the government-controlled towns of Mannar and Vavuniya Tuesday to begin work under the terms of the indefinite ceasefire which began on February 23, reports said. They are part of the 100 cadres scheduled to enter government controlled territory 60 days after the truce began, in addition to the fifty who assumed duties a month ago.

The twelve cadres who came to Vavuniya had been due a day earlier but were delayed when observers of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) were unavailable to accompany them through the Sri Lanka army checkpoint in Omanthai. The arrival of the group means the number of Tigers conducting political work in Vavuniya now stands at twenty.

Another twelve cadres entered Mannar Monday evening. The eight male and four female cadres were accompanied up to the Sri Lanka army checkpoint at Uyilankulam by senior officials of the LTTE's political section. Amongst the officials were Thamilini (head of the women's wing of political section), Sanjay (head of the Thooyavan Political Science College) and Moorthy (area leader for Adamban).

The group were received on the other side by members of the public and LTTE cadres already in Mannar as part of the first batch to enter the town. The latter were led by Amithap, head of the LTTE's political section in Mannar.
