TID interrogate former LTTE cadre over new political party

A former LTTE cadre who was subjected to Sri Lanka's 'rehabilitation programme' was interrogated by Terrorism Investigation Department (TID) officers over an election speech he made ahead of the recent local elections. 

Kandasamy Imbarajah, 43, launched and heads the 'Rehabilitated Liberation Tigers Party', which contested elections in the Eastern Province. 

TID officers interrogated Mr Imbarajah over a speech he delivered during the election campaign season, where he urged former LTTE cadres to stop giving information to military intelligence out of fear. 

The party's treasurer, Iyampillai Rajasekeram was already questioned by officers on March 30 in relation to this speech.
