The Sri Lankan Army today claimed that a group calling itself the British Tamil Union had in its website published photos and details of officers attached to the Sri Lanka Security Forces in an attempt at hitting back at the Sri Lankan Government for banning LTTE front organisations.

“The British Tamil Union (BTU) website has published information obtained from the security forces’ website. The information includes photos, contact details and birthdays of the officers. This is not a major issue. I think the BTU website has published this information in an attempt to hit back at the Government for banning several LTTE front organisations,” Army spokesman Ruwan Wanigasooriya told a news conference.

He said there were about 100 websites belonging to Sri Lankan Security Forces and related institutions with details of their officers.

“The BTU on its website has published details of 10,000 military officers obtained from our websites. This is not a security breech,” Brigadier Wanigasooriya said.   (Sanath Desmond and Lahiru Pothmulla)

    If it is not a security breach, why make an announcement of the same in the first place?

    It shows how the recent SLG ban on tiger proxies in the west are hurting them. Some of it must be from the paid koti in the south who will sell this country for any remnants from the western beggars

    Having the information and the pictures of officers of SL forces published on a such website is bad enough as anyone can see what it could lead to.
    But, what beats me is having all that information in the official web sites. It is beyond my comprehension.
