Former LTTE cadre and head of CFD summoned by TID

The Terrorist Investigations Division (TID) has summoned former LTTE cadre and head of the Crusaders for Democracy (CFD) Ganeshalingam Chandralingam alias Thulasi to appear at the Colombo office tomorrow.

Thulasi told the Colombo Gazette he was not aware of the reason for the summons issued to him.

“I got notice two days ago to appear before the TID tomorrow (Wednesday). I was not told why I need to come,” he said.

Thulasi said he feared the summons was an attempt to intimidate former LTTE cadres who have entered the democratic stream.

Over the past few weeks several diplomats based in Colombo have been meeting Thulasi to discuss concerns over their security and the state of affairs in the country.

In an interview to a local newspaper on Sunday Thulasi had appealed to the public, to put the past behind and look to the future.

Thulasi had said that today over 40 former LTTE cadres were involved in politics. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Do not compare the ruthless LTTE with the JVP.

    The LTTE was the ruthless terrorist organisation in the world. It had encouraged child suicide assassinations to eliminated leaders and intellectuals. I have full confidence in TID and I support them unconditionally. TID done a great job to eliminate the LTTE to bring peace and prosperity to Sri Lanka.
