[TamilNet, Friday, 19 June 2009, 10:17 GMT]
Seven officers of the Sri Lanka Army including two in the rank of Major were arrested by the intelligence officials of the Prevention of Terrorism Unit Wednesday on a report that they had been assisting the LTTE in the war time by collecting materials and other items, according to media reports that quoted SL Military Spokesman Udaya Nanayakkara.

The arrested SLA officials are being detained in the office of the Terrorist Investigation Unit in Colombo and are being interrogated.

Meanwhile the wife of a Lieutenant Colonel of the Sri Lanka Army and three other suspects who were taken into custody over alleged involvements in aiding an LTTE cadre engaged in covert warfare, according to media reports. The suspects Kareema Hamid, Ramasamy Prabhakaran, Wellahelige Dharmasiri and Shanmugam Ramadas were produced before Mt. Lavinia Additional Magistrate Darshika Wimalasiri.

The suspects were referred to detention on the orders of the Defence Secretary following a submission by the Colombo Crimes Division to court, legal sources said.
