CFA flawed, allows Tigers access to SLA areas for political work - Fonseka

[TamilNet, Friday, 24 March 2006, 20:12 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Commander, Lieutenant General Sarath Fonseka, at a ceremony held at the Army Headquarters in Colombo Friday said that there are many flaws in the Cease Fire Agreement (CFA) signed between the Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL) and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE). "The LTTE has exploited these flaws to enter the Sri Lanka government controlled areas to carryout political activities," charged the Sri Lankan commander.

"No one consulted the SLA before the signing of the CFA. If SLA's opinion had been sought we would not have accepted the conditions stipulated in the CFA," said Maj. Gen. Sarath Fonseka.

The Sri Lankan Commander was re-launching the SLA website at the ceremony.

The SLA commander further said that the Sri Lankan military is a legitimate entity enjoying the right to build up its military strength, whereas LTTE is a "terrorist entity" which cannot enjoy the right to build up its own military in Sri Lanka.

If sovereignty of Sri Lanka is challenged, Sri Lanka Army would be prepared to meet the challenge, Fonseka said.

Fonseka also said that the SLA has no ties either with Karuna Group or with any other armed paramilitary group.
