[TamilNet, Saturday, 01 July 2006, 15:43 GMT]
The graduation ceremony for about six thousand villagers who have completed their training under the civilian volunteer force programme in the LTTE-held Muttur east villages was held Friday evening at Sri Senbaga Maha Vidiyalyam grounds in Eachchilampathu division in the Trincomalee district. "Sinhala government in the south has shown its unwillingness to respect the legitimate rights of Tamil people. We are forced to strengthen ourselves with the support of Tamil people under the leadership and guidance of our national leader to move the liberation struggle vigorously forward," said Mr. S. Elilan, LTTE Trincomalee district political head, in a speech at the event, LTTE sources said.

Mr. Elilan further said, "We are disppointed with the approach of the international community toward resolving the conflict in Sri Lanka. They appear to be driven by their own domestic agendas."

At the commencement of the event, fathers of two LTTE martyrs lit the common flame of sacrifice and LTTE Trincomalee commander Vasanthan hoisted the Thamileelam national flag.

LTTE Deputy Commander Arivu lit the flame of sacrifice. Commander Thevan garlanded the photograph of Lieutenant Seelan, the first LTTE martyr from the Trincomalee district, LTTE sources said.

Villagers who have excelled in shooting practice and competitions related to military training were awarded special prizes.

A variety of entertainments organized by the Art and Culture Circle followed.
