NPC chairman urges end to Sri Lanka's ban on LTTE

The chairman of the Northern Provincial Council, C V K Sivagnanam this week called on the Sri Lankan government to end the proscription of the LTTE, arguing it was meaningless. 

"Eight years has lapsed since the war ended with even former LTTE members joining mainstream politics after surrendering their weapons and in such a scenario continuing with the ban on the LTTE is meaningless," he was quoted by the Daily Mirror as saying. 

"The time had come to consider the release of all LTTE suspects in custody and allow them to integrate into society after taking the necessary legal precautions and withdrawing the ban on the LTTE," he reportedly added.
