Tamil United Liberation Front (TULF) President V. Anandasangaree has warned the Sri Lankan government that the European Union Court’s annulment of the EU’s ban onthe LTTE will be a push to revive the separatist, terrorist outfit in the Northern Province.
The veteran Tamil politician told The New Indian Express on Friday: “Pro-LTTE groups both within the island and overseas have received a shot in the arm, and will now openly propagate the LTTE’s cause of separatism and terrorism. The TNA will now up its ante reflecting the LTTE’s demands.”
…Dr Rohan Gunaratna, who heads the International Centre for Political Violence and Terrorism Research at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore has also said: “The court did not conduct a substantive assessment of classification of the LTTE as a terrorist group.”
