Mr. Thamilchelvan and the Batticaloa-Amparai Commanders explained to the visitors the circumstances that led to the leaderships’ discharge of Karuna from the organization.

They further said that Karuna in order to cover up his wrongful actions in contravention of the organisation’s structure is trying to bring up dissension in the Tamil nation on the basis of an imaginary regionalism.

They assured that their actions to restore normalcy will not in anyway affect the people or the LTTE cadres in the Batticaloa-Amparai Districts.

Bishops delegation after listening to the explanations given by the LTTE leaders stressed the importance of ensuring that the matter is resolved peacefully.
