LTTE leader's speech distributed in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Friday, 28 November 1997, 23:59 GMT]
The Maveerar Day speech by the LTTE leader, Mr. V. Pirabakaran, was distributed in Jaffna town which is controlled by the Sri Lankan military.

Printed phamplets of Mr. Pirabakaran's speech were widely distributed, said sources in Jaffna.

In Kopay, 8 kms north of Jaffna town, Maveerar Day was observed in several places. Lamps were lit in many households.

There was a large LTTE military cemetary in Kopay, which was destroyed after Sri Lankan troops took control of Jaffna town in late 1995.

Mr. Pirabakaran condemned the desecration of Tiger graves in his Maveerar Day speech yesterday as "a wicked, immoral and uncivilized" act.
