The military says ‘Colonel’ Ram, a leading figure of the LTTE was never taken into custody and refuted claims made by General Sarath Fonseka’s camp that the Tiger official has been released from a detention order.

A statement released by General General Sarath Fonseka’s office claims that ‘Colonel’ Ram was released from military custody and that he could give leadership to dormant LTTE cadres resulting in the disruption not only of the election process but also to civilian property and cause the loss of innocent lives.’

The statement goes on to urge that relevant authorities take ‘necessary steps in this regard’.

However speaking to Daily Mirror Online Military Spokesperson Brigadier Udaya Nanayakkara stated that ‘Colonel’ Ram was never captured in the first place and is believed to be in hiding in the East. (KA)
