Sinhala nationalist movement demands ban on LTTE, abrogation of CFA

[TamilNet, Monday, 11 December 2006, 15:25 GMT]
The National Patriotic Movement (NPM), a broad coalition of extreme Sinhala Buddhist nationalists, held a protest meeting at Lipton Circle Monday at 3:00 p.m. demanding the Sri Lanka government to proscribe the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and to abrogate the Cease Fire Agreement (CFA) entered into with the LTTE. Wimal Weerawanse, parliamentary group leader of the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), a constituent of the NPM, warned that failure to meet the demands would result in a public agitation against the government, sources in Colombo said.

Nearly one thousand members of JVP and the NPM participated in this demonstration which ended with NPM Chairman Dr. Gunadasa Amarasekara handing over a memorandum to the Secretary of the President, Lalith Weerathunga at Temple Trees, the official residence of the President of Sri Lanka, the sources added.

Demonstration started near the Town hall and marched to the Temple trees.

Although, Sri Lanka Government has banned demonstrations in the High Security Zone (HSC) around the Temple Trees under Emergency Regulations, the demonstrators were allowed by the police and the presidential security division to enter the HSZ and demonstrate around Temple Trees.
