The Sri Lankan government has in a decisive move with far reaching implications proscribed as foreign terrorist entities, several overseas organizations suspected of being fronts of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).
 
The government banned the organizations as “foreign terrorists” utilising the UN Security Council Resolution 1373 which was brought about by the USA on September 28, 2001 after the attack on World Trader Center in New York on September 11, 2001.
 
It is expected that External Affairs Minister Prof. Gamini Lakshman Peiris will announce details of the proscription imposed on such foreign terrorist entities later this week.
 
The report said: 
 
“It is learnt that the Sri Lankan ministry of External Affairs has gazetted legislation outlawing several organizations reportedly functioning in several countries including the USA, Canada Britain, Norway, Italy, Switzerland, France and Australia.
 
“Among organizations proscribed are the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) headed by New York lawyer Visuvanathan Ruthirakumaran,Global Tamil Forum headed by Catholic Priest Fr.SJ Emmanuel,the LTTE group led by Perinbanayagam Sivaparan alias Nediyavan and the tiger group led by Sekarampillai Vinayagamoorthy alias Vinayagam.
 
It is expected that External Affairs minister Prof.Gamini Lakshman Peiris will announce details of the proscription imposed on such foreign terrorist entities later this week.
 
The proscribed entities listed in the Gazette consist of the main LTTE and 15 other alleged front organizations of the tigers.The proscribed organizations are as follows-
 
01. Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam a.k.a LTTE a.k.a Tamil Tigers.
02. Tamil Rehabilitation Organization a.k.a TRO.
03. Tamil Coordinating Committee a.k.a TCC
04. British Tamil Forum a.k.a BTF
05. World Tamil Movement a.k.a WTM
06. Canadian Tamil Congress a.k.a CTC
07. Australian Tamil Congress a.k.a ATC
08. Global Tamil Forum a.k.a GTF
09. National Council Of Canadian Tamils a.k.a NCCT a.k.a Makkal Avai
10. Tamil National Council a.k.a TNC
11.Tamil Youth Organization a.k.a TYO
12. World Tamil Coordinating Committee a.k.a WTCC.
13. Transnational Government Of Tamil Eelam a.k.a TGTE
14. Tamil Eelam Peoples Assembly a.k.a TEPA
15 .World Tamil Relief Fund a.k.a WTRF
16. Headquarters Group a.k.a HQ Group
According to authoritative sources the organizations listed as suspected terrorist entities functioning on foreign soil fall under four broad categories reportedly under the overall control of four key individuals.
They are the organization/s under-
1. Perinbanayagam Sivaparan alias “Nediyavan”;
2. Rev.Fr. SJ Emmanuel
3. Visuvanathan Ruthirakumaran
4. Sekarampillai Vinayakamoorthy alias Vinayagam
Explaing further the rationale behind such proscription at this juncture, informed sources stated that the fundamental objective was to appraise foreign countries, particularly Western nations of how LTTE fronts existing amidst members of the Tamil Diaspora resident on their soil were now financing the revival of LTTE activity in Sri Lanka.
 
The Government is concerned about the recent attempt to revive the LTTE in Sri Lanka. All evidence unearthed so far indicate that funds, support and assistance from LTTE front organizations are primarily responsible for the attempted tiger renaissance in Sri Lanka.
 
Since the UN resolution 1373 expects countries to assist one another to combat terrorism, Sri Lanka will request the host countries to investigate the activities of such organizations and key members on their soil and take appropriate action.
 
Sri Lanka will provide particulars about such key activists as authorities in Sri Lanka are in possession of the entire data base of former LTTE senior leader Veerakathy Manivannan alias Castro who was in charge of the LTTE international secretariat which directed and coordinated overseas LTTE activity until early 2009.
 
Castro simply abandoned his office in Pudukudiyiruppu and escaped when the Sri Lankan armed forces advanced thereby letting the data base with particulars of overseas LTTE activity fall easily into the lap of the security forces.
 
The Government is also likely to obtain cooperation from these Western countries to proclaim LTTE activists abroad as offenders” listed as Wanted or to be watched through related INTERPOL notices.
 
Speaking further authoritative sources said that as a result of the proscription coming into force Sri Lankan nationals in the Island will be forbidden to maintain contact or links with members of the proscribed organizations. This would prevent Sri Lankan political parties and leaders from obtaining funds from such entities for undertakings in Sri Lanka. This move is likely to affect several members of Tamil political parties in Sri Lanka.
This would also forbid Sri Lankan politicians and Non –Governmental Organization (NGO) activists being in contact with representatives of such entities either in Sri Lanka or during trips abroad.
 
Sections of the media in Sri Lanka giving wide coverage to statements and interviews given by officials of such organizations will also be restricted from doing so.
 
Furthermore, the proscription will also render members of these proscribed entities liable for arrest under the Prevention of Terrorism Act(PTA) if and when apprehended while visiting Sri Lanka.
 
It is learnt that extensive dossiers of key individuals from these proscribed organizations and their activities abroad would be provided to the respective countries concerned in due course.
 
Sri Lankan authorities are expected to strictly enforce provisions of the proscription under UN resolution 1373 after the Sinhala –Tamil New Year in April this year. (D.B.S. Jeyaraj)

    Well my view and only expectation is LTTE should be wiped out completely. They are the betrayers of Tamils in general.

    rohan Monday, 31 March 2014 08:04 PM

    Nothing is going to work sadly.

    Brilliant chess move. Look forward to the Check mate.

    Who cares, in the book of History LTTE named as a Ruthless Terrorist Group who murdered Millions of precious souls.

    NADARAJAH SETHURUPAN Monday, 31 March 2014 08:26 PM

    LTTE has 430 NGOs around the world including NCET in Norway.

    Nims Monday, 31 March 2014 08:28 PM

    Excellent decision by the government. The government must have dome it just after eradicating the LTTE. Let them learn a lesson if they dont want peace in their motherland. Tamil priests went all over the World (especially Argentina, Brazil and other Catholic countries) campaigning against Sri Lanka. What id our Sinhala priests do? Nothing?

    Rohan Tuesday, 01 April 2014 02:06 AM

    Well done. If USA can do it, so do we. These LTTE sympathizers must be stopped at any cost. They are much larger than we see. What we see is the tip of the iceberg. via DM Android App

    Your ban is powerless at this moment.

    Bernard Wijeyasingha Monday, 31 March 2014 08:54 PM

    Then by the very nature of the UN Security Council Resolution 1373, India is in violation of harboring TESO, TELO, and PLOT. All of whom are fronts of the LTTE. That should include all the nations listed in this article. By that they have no right to be in any position to accuse Sri Lanka on any human rights violations.

    Ratavasiya Monday, 31 March 2014 08:58 PM

    What about the LTTE leaders with the government.

    Its high time too that these bans are enacted. All these organizations are the left over LTTE Rump in the western countries.

    What about the TNA? We have to show the world that we have balls to what right for the people of Sri Lanka. Individuals who harbour terrorists and Velu's ideology should also be banned. Individuals and NGOs who hide their paws under HR bannder should be banished. Ban won't be happy about the bans! Barrak and David whose days are numbered by their own voters will bark as always.

    Prag Monday, 31 March 2014 11:05 PM

    All Tamil Organisation!! What about BBS and Hela urumaya??? They are disturbing the peace among the different community in Sri Lanka!!!

    The ban has not stopped the resoloution, economic and travel sanctions.

    Jeezz Tuesday, 01 April 2014 12:06 PM

    Excellent move. Long due. Some LTTE sympathizers have already started to play the racist card. A terrorist is a terrorist no matter in which form, organisation or in which country they are based in. Time to test how the governments who always shout about terrorism and expect the whole world to cooperate with them will act when it is concerned outside their world. via DM Android App

    Wait very soon there will be bans by the western countries on Sri Lanka and its leaders and better withdraw all your secret deposits in the banks in the West.
