LTTE denies involvement in Kadirgamar killing

[TamilNet, Saturday, 13 August 2005, 06:15 GMT]
Denying any involvement in the assassination of Sri Lanka's Foreign Minister Mr. Lakshman Kadirgamar, LTTE's Political Head, Mr. S. P. Thamilchelvan Saturday condemned Colombo for hastily blaming the Liberation Tigers for the killing. Thamilchelvan said that there are several forces opposed to the Cease Fire Agreement (CFA) in the South. "We also know that there are sections within the Sri Lankan Armed forces operating with a hidden agenda to sabotage the CFA," he said and urged Colombo to conduct a thorough investigation to identify the assassins.

LTTE's Political Head, when contacted by TamilNet Saturday morning, further said that Colombo, ridden with internal rifts and power struggles, should look inwards for culprits of the assassination. He added that there is a growing trend in the South to blame the Liberation Tigers for all killings.

Meanwhile, traffic along A9 entering Sri Lanka Government controlled region were held up at the Muhamalai and Omanthai checkpoints for several hours Saturday morning, civil sources said. Situation is back to normal at these checkpoints, travellers said.

Similar restrictions are also reported in several Sri Lanka Army checkpoints in the east.

Sri Lanka's Foreign Minister Mr. Kadirgamar was shot Friday by unidentified sniper at his residence, which is guarded by more than a hundred armed security personnel.

The SL Government has declared a state of emergency following the assasination of Foreign Minister Lakshman Kadirgamar on Friday night.
