Sri Lankan army holds all information on 'rehabilitated' LTTE cadres, commander warns

The Sri Lankan army holds all information about rehabilitated LTTE cadres, and therefore there was no ‘threat’ to national security, the army’s commander warned.

Speaking to Ada Derana about the killing of two Sri Lankan police officers in Batticaloa, the commander Mahesh Senanayake said that although the killing was a lone incident it could not be ignored in the current situation.

The army holds all information on ‘rehabilitated’ LTTE cadres, which the public should not have any doubt about he added.

Tamil media sources reported earlier that rehabilitated former LTTE cadres were living in fear of being targeted and scapegoated for the police officer murders.
