illam20061017ltte_logoLTTE’s militære talsmand, Irasiah Ilanthirayan, udtrykte dyb beklagelse over de forvoldte skader mod de udenlandske diplomater, der landede på det srilankanske luftvåbens landingsplads i Batticaloa og på Weber Stadion, hvor brigade 23-3 brigade-kommandør’s militære hovedkvarter ligger, og fordømte den srilankanske regering for at have udsat udenlandske diplomater for livsfare ved at bringe dem ind på et artilleri-beskudt område inden for den militære zone uden at følge de diplomatiske procedurer.

”Vi standsede øjeblikkelig skydningen, så snart vi , af hr. Marine, FN’s repræsentant for koordinering af sikkerheds-forhold here i Kilinochchi, . blev underrettet om, at udenlandske diplomater var under artilleri-beskydning,” sagde Ilanthirayan.


”Vi er chokerede over den alvorlige forsømmelse af sikkerheds-forholdene for diplomater fra den srilankanske regering, som har transporteret delegationen ind i affyrings-området for artilleri i den nuværende situation med kraftige artilleri-angreb.”


Der er en løbende procedure med at informere LTTE på forhånd, når udenlandske diplomater og NGO’er planlægger at besøge krigszoner. Befrielses Tigrenes forbindelses-officer for FN- og NGO-sager informeres detaljeret om de besøgende og deres bagage. Den srilankanske militære ledelse har ignoreret denne praksis i Batticaloa, erklærede han.


”Dette er en simpel procedure, som bevidst er blevet ignoreret i Batticaloa af det srilankanske militær.”


”Vi fordømmer GoSL i de stærkest mulige vendinger for at forsøge at sabotere LTTS’s forbindelser til de udenlandske missioner og det internationale samfund.”


”Dette er også en kriminel handling, hvor det srilankanske militær undlader at følge procedurerne, men er mere optagne af en selv-proklameret krig i hele Batticaloa distrikt,” sagde talsmanden.


LTTE besvarede fjendtligt artilleri og mortér-angreb tirsdag morgen, sagde han.


Flyet med de udenlandske diplomater var landet på SLAF’s militære landingsbane, og to helikoptere var landet inden for hoved-militærlejren i Batticaloa by.
