Two charges dismissed against assemblyman over alleged ‘LTTE links’

The Sessions Court allowed a prosecution application to dismiss two charges of possessing items related to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) against Seremban Jaya assemblyman P. Gunasekaran.

Judge Madihah Harullah accepted the request after deputy public prosecutor Aslina Ahad made the application.

According to the charges, Gunasekaran allegedly had LTTE-related items in his office and house, Malay Mail reported.

The assemblyman was represented by a panel of four lawyers, led by RSN Rayer. 

“We were informed this morning after the charges were filed that the prosecutors had decided to withdraw the two charges. No reasons given,” he said.

“We hope the prosecutor will reconsider to withdraw the LTTE-related charges against the others detained under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act (Sosma) 2012,” he added.
