Colombo (News 1st); The Mayor of Jaffna Visvalingam Manivannan was arrested by Sri Lankan Police on Friday (09) for employing five people and providing them with a uniform similar to what was worn by the so-called LTTE police.

The LTTE is a proscribed organization and therefore is it prohibited to display any material that promotes the LTTE, said Police Spokesperson DIG Ajith Rohana.

Investigations carried out by the Terrorist Investigation Division and Jaffna Police revealed the five people were temporarily employed by the Jaffna Mayor and he had assigned them to a certain task while proving them with the said uniform.

The TID and Jaffna Police had recorded statements from multiple witnesses for the investigations.
