UNP MP Jayalath Jayawardane said yesterday that he would ask the Inspector General of Police and the Attorney General to take steps to hand over LTTE chief arms procurer Kumaran Pathmanathan alias KP to Interpol as soon as possible.
Last week, Dr. Jayawardane said in Parliament that a court in Chennai had issued an arrest warrant on KP to Interpol.
“After I raised this matter, a many people contacted me. Members of the Tamil diaspora also contacted me and asked about it. I am going to ask the IGP and the Attorney General to hand over KP to Interpol,” he said.
He said that it was wrong to harbour a person who had allegedly been involved in criminal acts. According to the arrest warrant, KP is wanted for offences involving weapons and terrorism. (Kelum Bandara)
