LTTE slams Colombo for open support to renegade

[TamilNet, Sunday, 11 July 2004, 14:44 GMT]
Head of the Liberation Tigers' political division for Batticaloa, Mr. E Kousalyan, Sunday slammed the Sri Lankan government for "openly promoting" renegade commander Mr. Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan (Karuna) by "providing him state radio facilities to attack the Tigers with the obvious aim of destroying the mutual goodwill on which the cease fire is based."

Mr. Kousalyan was reacting to an interview with the renegade commander broadcast on the state run radio Sunday night.

"The truth is out today beyond any doubt that the Sri Lankan state is providing him state facilities to wage a proxy war of black propaganda against the LTTE and to carry out terrorist attacks with the assistance Sri Lankan military intelligence to derail the cease fire," he said.

"The Sri Lankan state's aims are now very obvious to us. It is now openly exploiting Karuna in the hope of weakening the LTTE. This would make it plain to the Tamil people that the Sri Lankan state is not interested at all in taking forward the peace process but is only bent on using the talks and the cease fire to wage a terrorist war on us in the baseless hope of weakening us militarily and politically," Mr. Kousalyan said.

"We are ready to face the war that the Sri Lankan state has decided thrust on us thus," he emphasised.
