A group of LTTE members named “Tossi” who was serving for the LTTE intelligence and later surrendered to the Sri Lanka army was influenced by a group of army intelligence who were able to speak fluent Tamil has wielded this fake LTTE under the instructions of the ministry of defense.
Thavendran (Sumathipala Suresh Kumar) a rehabilitated LTTE who was attached to the army intelligence following the end of the war now currently under police custody said the fake LTTE was preserving a camp in the Girithale jungle and Prageeth was a frequent visitor to this camp.
This fake LTTE organization was functioned in stealth without doubts and it has kept links with factual LTTE leaders. However information’s reveal that in spite of having a trustful relationship with the LTTE there were few terror operations conducted in the south following the orders of the organization.
Meantime CID reveals this fake LTTE organization has appeared as true LTTE representatives and continued its dealings with the LTTE organization abroad and with the Diaspora members.
However it was disclosed that following the end of the war this fake LTTE group was used for political murders. This group has consisted with 650 intelligence members and functioned as a large network.
Thavendran who was serving under the leadership of Gnanavel who was a leader of the LTTE secret service “Tossi”, has joined the army intelligence and conducted many operations following rehabilitation.
He has revealed information’s about many operations he did with the LTTE and with the army intelligence and the links he had with many organizations, people and mainstream media organizations in the south.
Based on the information’s revealed by Thavendran the CID would question the former army commander Sarath Fonseka and the former Defense Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa.
Meantime police headquarter reports confirm that the CID would take statements from the former army commander Jagath Jayasuriya, Major General Kapila Hendawitharana, Brigadier Wanniarachchi, Major General Amal Karunasekara and Major General Janmika Liyanage.
Split in the army
The defense secretary with greatest difficulty gave permission to the CID on the 27th for further detain and investigate army intelligence lieutenant colonel Kumara Rathnayaka, lieutenant colonel Siriwardana, staff sergeant Rajapaksa and corporal Jayalath who were taken in to custody on suspicious grounds for the disappearance of Prageeth Ekneligoda. Before this the CID took a sergeant major in the army and two Tamil nationals including Thavendran into custody.
Heads of the army has urged the government not to betray the army intelligence officers who did a great service to defeat the LTTE militarily. They have warned the government stating that if the government fails to comply there would be possibilities that many secrets about military operations conducted in the north would be revealed.
When SATHHANDA inquired about this in the police headquarters with a senior police officer, he said if there is no hindrance from the government for the CID investigations conducted we would be able to expose many war crimes and disclose under whose instructions this was done.
