The Opposition is accused of extending support to the LTTE loyalists to revive the outfit. Director General of the Media Centre for National Security Lakshman Hulugalle said that legal action will be initiated against such persons who conspire against the country.
Expressing views at a media conference at the Police Headquarters, Mr. Hulugalle said that although terrorism has been vanquished from the country, still there are groups supporting the terrorists and helping them. It has been identified that some parties and MPs in the Opposition were visiting other countries and sullying Sri Lanka’s image. Mr. Hulugalla stated that certain statements made by opposition MPs during foreign visits have instigated the pro-LTTE Diaspora. Their main purpose is to discourage investors and tourists. Mr. Hulugalle said they were drawing the firm attention of the Defence Ministry to this matter.
