The government is prepared to order NGO’s who are linked with funding the LTTE, to shut down and have their officials deported, Prime Minister D. M. Jayaratna told Daily Mirror online.

Prime Minister Jayaratna said that the government has identified NGOs who have provided finance, fire arms and advice to the LTTE and have taken measures to cancel their licenses.

With regard to accusations that the government was not permitting NGOs to visit mined and resettled areas in the North, the Prime Minister stated that if an NGO official is injured while visiting mined areas, the government would have to take the responsibility. 

Therefore the Government has decided to permit visits only after de-mining is completed and will not succumb to pressure from the international community, Prime Minister Jayaratna added. (Daily Mirror online)

    They should be named. The world should know, so that such NGOs can be prevented from supporting terrorists, even in other countries.

    This is a very good move by the government .
    Those who helped the L.T.T.E should not be permitted to stay in this country.

    As for NGO officials visiting "mined and resettled areas in the North", why not permit them to visit at their own risk instead of giving the excuse that "the government would have to take the responsibility" in case of injury?

    KP was too linked directly to LTTE.
