Sri Lanka police collect details of Jaffna LTTE offices

[TamilNet, Saturday, 11 January 2003, 17:51 GMT]
The Jaffna District People's Forum and the Consortium of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs )Saturday condemned the action of the Sri Lanka Police collecting details of persons working in the offices of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam(LTTE) and the buildings where the organisation's offices are located in the peninsula, sources said.

Police officials Saturday visited LTTE's political office in the Vadamarachchi division and had asked to furnish details about persons working there and also about the owner of the building, sources said.

LTTE has opened offices in Jaffna to carryout political activities in accordance with the cease-fire agreement signed between the Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL) and the LTTE.

It is disconcerting to note that Security forces while occupying private civilian buildings for their use are collecting information about buildings used by the LTTE, NGOs sources pointed out. This is a deliberate act of provocation, sources in Jaffna said.
