At a meeting held in Colombo on Sunday, Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe expressed the following views about the European Union lifting its ban on the LTTE.

“We must ask the President, why he did not intervene in the European Union case. The Sri Lankan government did not come forward in this case, I have a copy of the case file. This means that the Sri Lankan Government did not come forward and that it was two other nations that came forward. Why did they not come forward? I am of the position now, that they should approach the EU Representative and the Foreign Ministries of the two countries concerned and request that they appeal against this decision. I make this request of them on behalf of Sri Lanka. “

He added:

“If the LTTE is successful in this case, then eventually, the money in these accounts will fall into the hands of KP and others in that group. We know that the LTTE had 20 ships. Our Navy destroyed one ship. One was found in Indonesia. Minister Keheliya Rambukwella said the other 18 were being brought to Sri Lanka. To this day, those ships have not come here. I call on the President to state in public as to who it was that met with the diaspora in New York in the United States. Why is it that steps are yet to be taken to find the assets of the LTTE including the ships and fuelling stations? “.
