An arms dealer who sold communication equipment to the military has sold the same equipment to the LTTE as well. The equipment has been unearthed in Mullaitivu.

Among the communication equipment recovered are jamming devices to block the signal of the communication equipment sold to the military, Defence sources said.

    I totally agree with "citizen". Someone is going to be the scape goat.

    Nothing will happen as he may have sold the equipment to the Army through well connected parties at top.

    Isn't this how it usually works?

    This is quite natural. Dealers, in arms or otherwise, will sell wherever, or to whomever, they can, in order to make a 'fast buck.' We cannot expect dealers to be patriotic.

    All things will unearthed, in time to come.

    Why did the government go to an 'arms dealer'? Surely, they could have negotiated a government to government deal, at a much lower cost.

    The LTTE had Chinese weapons too; although, we prefer to 'worship' China and downplay their duplicity.

    How about catching the culprits within the government, who procured these arms from shady dealers, and filled their pockets with thumping commissions?

    There is no ethics or morality in arms sales. Who are we kidding & why are we complaining?

    arm dealing is a business, there is no ethics... only profit...

    it is easy to guess where this story is going to lead and who is that arms dealer is.

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 12:38 PM

    May be some corrupt officers in the Army sold to LTTE, not the supplier. The Government should investigate how it got into the hands of the LTTE.

    Nothing will happen. All double gamers will eventually edn up in top positions, may be even as MP's and Ministers.

    we must expose this company to the world so no country will buy arms from them. so will the terrorists. let them close the company soon by doing this. also we have no more war in sri lanka. thank god. thanks to our president.

    No wonder !!, Exactly same as "Peace" brokers like Akashi.

    Who ordered? SF's son in law?

    Tony Stark... Right ???

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 12:46 PM

    Who is this fellow? Maybe KP will know!

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 12:56 PM

    This is not news. It happens all the time.

    Tuesday, 25 May 2010 01:54 PM

    I think we should stop talking humbug on LTTE matters again & again , instead positively plan how to develop our country in the long run & act fast.

    Both parties played the Double Game !.
