LTTE under KP will not renounce violence - London Times
The Times of London newspaper reacting to the new announcement that the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) would reorganize itself as a provisional transnational government of Tamil Eelam said it has not eschewed violence as a means of obtaining power.
Until it was crushed as a military group by the Sri Lankan Army the outfit was known as the most ruthless terrorist outfit in the world.
It is yet to be known, if violence is applied, how it would be applied in the international arena in the coming years.
Referring to the new leader of the terrorist outfit who has appointed himself to be in the shoes of the late Velupillai Prabhakaran, who was killed by the Sri Lanka Army with his other top military aids, the Times said, Pathmanathan gave no indication that the group would renounce violence.
The Tamil Tigers’ former head of International Relations, Selvarasa Pathmanathan, better known as the outfit chief procurement officer for arms and ammunition, KP and was wanted by the Interpol or International Police for gun and drug running. He was also wanted for the assassination of the former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, together with Velupillai Prabhakaran and Pottu Amman.
