[TamilNet, Monday, 08 May 2006, 10:09 GMT]
Sri Lanka's Secretariat for Coordinating the Peace Process (SCOPP) in a message forwarded to the Liberation Tigers has informed that the A9 Road will be open "as soon as LTTE refrains the general public of Jaffna from agitating," indicating increasingly confrontational position being taken by the Government of Sri Lanka in the aftermath of the killings in Thenmaradchy, sources in Kilinochchi said. of eight civilians allegedly by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA).

The message was forwarded to the SLMM in Colombo, informed sources close to Governments Peace Secretariat in Colombo said.

Confirming that a similar message was received the Director of the Liberation Tigers Peace Secretariat, Puleedevan, said that the message was a baseless accusation.

"Colombo is adopting this tactic to divert the attention from mounting criticism against the Sri Lanka Government for the extra judicial killings carried out by its armed forces," Puleedevan added.
