LTTE banned in Sri Lanka

Wednesday, January 07, 2009

The LTTE has been banned from tonight, the Government announced a short while ago. The decision to ban the LTTE was taken at today’s Cabinet meeting and was proposed by President Mahinda Rajapaksa and was unanimously approved by the Cabinet. A gazette notification to this effect will be issued shortly, Minister Maithripala Sirisena told reporters at a press briefing.

The LTTE was first banned on January 27, 1998 after it bombed the Sri Dalada Maligawa in Kandy. After the Ceasefire Agreement of February 2002, then Prime Minister, Ranil Wickremesinghe wanted to initiate talks with the LTTE. As a result the ban was lifted on September 5, 2002.
