Hardcore LTTEers to be prosecuted soon

The Government will in the next few weeks file charges against 60 hardcore LTTE cadres against whom the authorities had found clear evidence of having committed war crimes and crimes against humanity, a Committee of Legal Counsel said yesterday.

Additional Solicitor General Suhada Gamlath told Daily Mirror that this committee, which was set up to consider pending cases under the PTA, has finalised the prosecution process and would now move on to what needed to be done next.

He said some 80 more LTTE cadres are under investigation by the Terrorists Investigation Division (TID) after new evidence was found that they were involved in separatist activities even while in detention.

“The TID has gathered reliable information that these LTTE cadres have been in contact with LTTE activists and the Tamil Diaspora who are conspiring set up a transnational state of Tamil Eelam,” Mr. Gamlath said.

He said their nefarious activities came to light during the Vavuniya prison riots in June. The TID has found evidence that they had used information technology and cell phones to keep in touch with their contacts abroad and of having acted on their advice.

Mr. Gamlath said four new High Courts will be set up in the Anuradhapura, Vavuniya, Mannar and Welikada prisons to expedite the court inquiry by the JSC.

During their investigations, the Committee had checked out some 300 files of LTTE detainees and about 150 ex LTTEers against whom there was no evidence of serious crimes would be sent for rehabilitation.

“It is with a sense of relief that we are able to finalise this matter and take a final decision because the international community, the UN and other global agencies are looking at Sri Lanka and expressed concern about these LTTE detainees,” Mr. Gamlath said. (Sandun A. Jayasekera)

    Just Another Citizen Saturday, 06 October 2012 03:41 AM

    Excellent idea to put to trial these genocidal, racist terrorists to trial and then behind bars forever. This will keep those demanding war crimes investigations quiet. Also those convicted be allowed to leave Sri Lanka and live permanently in countries demanding HRights for terrorists and let them do what they do best - credit card scams, armed robbery, rape, extortions.

    gamlath Saturday, 06 October 2012 04:02 AM

    are there any worst harcore LTTE memebers than Karuna, pillayan, KP etc.? will they be also prosecuted? this govt is fooling the entire nation under the cover of Patriotism, terrorism ,development etc.

    Janaki Kalansuriya Saturday, 06 October 2012 11:12 AM

    no, they are soft core "you know what" actors with the government. Bahu more likely will be the hard core!!

    Saman Saturday, 06 October 2012 11:18 AM

    clement Sunday, 07 October 2012 05:23 AM

    sandu i completly agree with you. GOD has already punished the genocide mass murderes in early 2009 by sending prabha & his gand to hell

    sayed Saturday, 06 October 2012 04:36 AM

    Roger Saturday, 06 October 2012 04:34 AM

    Thomas Saturday, 06 October 2012 04:44 AM

    The Judge Saturday, 06 October 2012 04:47 AM

    Punish the ones already in hand such as Karuna,KP, Pillaiyan etc who are under protection of GOSL.

    Sandu Sunday, 07 October 2012 02:11 PM

    God already punished SF by sending him to prison. He might have not even had a dream of going to prison during his military career.God's punishment might take some time, but no one can escape from it. Prabakaran knew he will die in the battle from they day he joined LTTE.

    Sandu Saturday, 06 October 2012 01:31 PM

    Who will punish, those who committed genocide? God???

    dev Saturday, 06 October 2012 05:06 AM

    Fair N Square Saturday, 06 October 2012 01:52 PM

    KP = The financier...( he didnt have a choice)

    singing fish Saturday, 06 October 2012 05:38 AM

    What about the soldiers,paramilitary group and muslim home guards who carried out the genocide?

    S. Harindra Saturday, 06 October 2012 12:00 AM

    A good initiative. It's long overdue. Every suspect is indeed entitle for a fair trial. If found guilty, beyond any reasonable doubt, these murderous criminals deserve the death penalty; atleast for the sake of grieving families of all victims.

    Em Sunday, 07 October 2012 07:09 AM

    Pride of Asia Saturday, 06 October 2012 06:25 AM

    No! KP, Pillaya and Karuna and good people according to our President. All the others are terrorists. This is Sri Lanka. Pride of Asia. When one looks at the state of affairs of this country, it is actually correct for Sri Lanka to be proud in Asia.

    Unchikun Saturday, 06 October 2012 07:14 AM

    No they are angles or money machines .

    Hussain Saturday, 06 October 2012 05:47 PM

    Genocide was committed by the LTTE terrorists . One canot make an omelet without breaking an egg. What is your point?
    Still parlaying the LTTE & Ch4 propaganda?

    Hussain Saturday, 06 October 2012 05:50 PM

    One cannot end a brutal terrorist war without colateral damage.
    and your point here is what? In all wars innocents die in the cross fire. There have never been wars anywhere in the world since human civilization began, without damage to non combatants.

    clement Saturday, 06 October 2012 07:56 AM

    GOTA is a war hero who won the war for us we will die for him anyday. now see our land for last 03years new highways /cbo cleaned up people enjoying tourism sky high & intl sporting events /fashin weeks in par with paris... most of all people have no fear to go to work without being killed
