No prohibition from LTTE cemeteries, court rules

People cannot be prohibited from entering any Maaveerar Thuyilum Illam - LTTE cemeteries - a Kilinochchi court has ruled.
The Kilinochchi magistrates court has rejected Kilinochchi police's call to bar people from entering the cemeteries, with the judge also stating that people had the right to remember and pay tribute to their dead relatives.
Thousands of Tamils gathered at LTTE cemeteries across the North-East to mark Maaveerar Naal.
The ruling follows the arrest on Thursday of five people attempting to construct a memorial monument at the Kanagapuram Thuyilum Illam.
The five were released on bail for 50,000 rupees.
