No LTTE link to German aircraft - Police

[TamilNet, Friday, 17 March 2000, 20:21 GMT]
The production of a two seater aircraft by a German citizen at Negombo had no links with the Liberation Tigers, according to Sri Lankan Police sources. Quoting the Negombo Police, the Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation in its night news bulletin said that a German millionaire was taken into custody and later released on surety bail by Negombo Magistrate today.

According to investigations conducted by the Police, the German had imported a light aircraft engine illegally and attempted to produce an aircraft.

The said German national is the Managing Director of a company in the Katunayake Investment Promotion Zone. He obtained Sri Lanka citizenship by marrying a Sri Lankan Tamil woman, Police said.

Two days ago, the Police arrested another German national when assembling a light aircraft at Talagune in Negombo police area.

Both German Nationals today appeared in Negombo Magistrates Court and were granted surety bail. Both were ordered to appear in court on Monday.

Acting Headquarters Inspector of Police Gamini Wijenayake said that the LTTE had no links with the production of a light aircraft by these German nationals, according to preliminary investigations.
