The international community has made a series of inquiries about the proscription of 15 Tamil organisations operating abroad and suspected to be fronts of the LTTE decimated in Sri Lanka, the Daily Mirror learns.

Also, some countries have made similar inquiries about recent attempts to revive the LTTE in the north.

The government banned these organizations in terms of the UN Security Council Resolution 1373 which was introduced by the United States in September, 2001 following the attack on New York twin towers. The External Affairs Ministry issued the necessary gazette notification based on recommendations by the Defence Ministry.

The proscribed organizations include the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) led by Visuvanathan Ruthirakumaran, Global Tamil Forum headed by Fr. SJ Emmanuel, the LTTE rump groups led by Perinbanayagam Sivaparan alias Nediyavan and Sekarampillai Vinayagamoorthy alias Vinayagam.

The military shot dead three men they believed were trying to revive the LTTE when they tried to escape a cordon in Nedunkerny in the North.

Against this backdrop, the External Affairs Ministry, together with the Defence Ministry, has decided to brief the diplomatic community accredited to Colombo next Thursday. Minister G.L. Peiris will address the ambassadors and high commissioners.

The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) has already adopted a resolution calling for an international inquiry into incidents that took place during the war between 2002 and 2009, however, the government has rejected such an inquiry. (Kelum Bandara)

    Sri Lanka doesn't question other countries when they ban terrorists outfits & fronts in their respective countries For Example, Australia has banned 19 TOs (Except one all others Muslim TOs)and no one has questioned about it and not even the Muslim countries.

    These front organizations are operating in and with the full knowledge of the international community. Just as the funds for the LTTE war were raised in and with the full knowledge of the international community. So what more do they want to know from GOSL? via DM Android App
