LTTE slam new SLN camp

[TamilNet, Friday, 04 October 2002, 06:51 GMT]
The Liberation Tigers Friday lodged a protest with the international ceasefire monitors that the Sri Lanka Navy is preparing to set up a new camp on the coast near the Kuchchaveli divisional secretariat, 34 km. north of Trincomalee. The Navy has formally sought land from the local authorities, sources said.

The head of the LTTE’s political wing in Trincomalee, Mr. S. Tilak, condemned the plan in a letter to the head of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) in Trincomalee.

"We consider this act as a violation of the cease-fire agreement intended to derail the present peace process. Hence, we request you to take immediate steps to stop the establishment of a new SLN camp in the area," the LTTE letter said.
