Opposition’s conspiracy with LTTE rump come to light
The conspiracy hatched in the West and plotted at former President
Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga’s official residence came to light
when the Global Tamil Forum (GTF) jumped the gun, claiming that they
would take President Mahinda Rajapaksa to an international war tribunal
if Maithirpala Sirisena wins the next Presidential election.
A day after Maithripala Sirisena was named the joint Opposition
candidate following a conspiracy by Kumaratunga and her confidant, UNP
parliamentarian Mangala Samaraweera, the GTF has disclosed its future
plans. The LTTE front organisation is yearning to take the leaders who
ushered in peace to the country before the international courts in Hague
with the support of opportunistic Opposition politicians.
Suren Surendran of the GTF had told Al Jazeera television that they
plan to take President Rajapaksa before an international war tribunal
for alleged war crimes if the joint Opposition candidate emerges
victorious. He has said that it will be easy to take President before
the war crimes tribunal if he loses the immunity as the Head of State.
Isn’t this an indication on the links between the common Opposition
and the LTTE cohorts to discredit the country and take the leader who
saved the nation from LTTE terrorism before the international war crimes
However, on a previous occasion, the President, who gave an unmatched
political leadership to the Security Forces during the country’s
relentless battle against terrorism, had said that he is ready to go
before any international court on behalf of the true sons of our soil
who had eradicated terrorism and ushered in a peaceful country for all
communities to live in peace and harmony.
