Legal action will be taken against anyone found to have held events in support of the LTTE in the North this week, the Government said today.
The Government said that it is not aware of any events held glorifying the LTTE but if there were such events then legal action will be taken against the organizers.
Some members of the opposition had claimed that LTTE cadres killed during the war had been commemorated in the North this week.
“If such events were held then they were isolated,” President Maithripala Sirisena said at a meeting with media heads today.
The President said that the Government is against such events being held and will not agree to democracy and freedom being misused. (Colombo Gazette)
