I know where the money is - KP

Kumaran Pathmanathan, the self-proclaimed successor of slain LTTE chief V Prabakaran, has said that he knows where the large haul of cash of the group is being kept and with whom following Tigers' defeat in 2009.

"I know who is having the large sums of money belonging to the LTTE. I know this will be a difficult job but I will try to find that money in order to help Tamil people," he was quoted as saying by the BBC.

Pathmanathan, better known as KP, announced himself the LTTE chief immediately after Prabakaran was killed by the Sri Lankan forces on May 19, 2009.

Three months later KP was arrested by Sri Lankan agents in Malaysia and brought to Colombo. Since then he has been living under government detention. He has expressed his desire to cooperate in rehabilitation and reconstruction of war-hit areas in the north and east regions of the country.

Under government escort, KP had visited the former battle regions heading his North Eastern Rehabilitation and Development Organisation (NERDO) and has expressed his desire to work with the Tamil diaspora to develop the regions.

KP told BBC that he was trying to secure the release of thousands of former LTTE cadres held by the government.

Pathmanathan was once Prabakaran's most trusted confidante and was overlooking the group's international arms purchases during the height of the conflict. He said the slowness in administrative procedures and the influence from both Sinhala and Tamil extremist elements have hampered the process to secure the release of the former LTTE men and women.

KP said he had played a lead role in forming the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam while residing in Malaysia. "Now it is a different situation. What is important now is to create a better future for the Tamils", he added. (indianexpress)

    As long as he does not tell about the place where the money is kept , he is safe.

    Jeyaraj Sunday, 26 June 2011 12:18 PM

    If you really knew that,I'm sure you would never release it to the press.You would surely tell only your MASTERS instead.

    Minister Sunday, 26 June 2011 12:19 PM

    KP can secure the release of thousands of LTTE, but the millions of this country cannot secure the release of the man who fought against LTTE!
