Red notice on Nediyavan: Norway still evaluating the request

25 April 2014 03:35 am - 7     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}

Norwegian Foreign Ministry said that it was still evaluating how to respond to the approach by the Sri Lankan government with regard to the red notice that make it necessary for Norway's government to arrest Perinpanayagam Sivaparan or Nediyavan, an Oslo-based Tamil, who is claimed to be the new leader of the LTTE, a Norwegian news agency ‘The Local’ reported.
Sri Lankan police earlier this month issued red notices, effectively an international arrest warrant, for 40 members of the LTTE, including Sivaparan.

Morten Høglund, the incoming State Secretary in Norway's Foreign Ministry, told state broadcaster NRK that the foreign ministry was still evaluating how to respond to the approach.

So far, Sivaparan's name does not appear on the Interpol database.

Norway briefly arrested Sivaparan in Oslo in 2011, interviewing  him over his role in financing operations for the LTTE among the Tamil diaspora in The Netherlands and then releasing him on conditional bail.

But while the five Dutch Tamils were in October 2011 jailed for six months by a court in The Hague for raising money for an organisation on the European Union's banned list, Sivaparan has not been called back by Norwegian police.

    Norway in a soup since if it does not take action on the red notice, it will "officially" prove Norway protect foreign terrorists in its country.

    They never stop evaluate arresting LTTE terrorists like they did over 30 years in the past by habouring them. This is truly double standard.
