Courts ban LTTE remembrance events in North

Courts have banned several remembrance events for LTTE cadres in the North planned by some of organisations and political parties.

Accordingly Police in the North have taken steps to ban all such events by a number of Tamil political parties and organizations in the North, including the Tamil National Alliance (TNA), from November 21 to 27.

Police have taken steps to obtain restraining orders from the courts preventing the holding of these events in all jurisdictions in the North.

The Mullaitivu Police has already obtained a court order prohibiting the holding of ceremonies within the jurisdiction of the Mullaitivu Magistrate courts. Arrangements had been made to hold 12 such events in the Mullaitivu area. The Police have made the organisers aware about the restraining order from the court.

Senior police officers in the North have already instructed all police stations to arrest those involved in violating court orders, regardless of rank.
