Court orders have been given to further remand 160 more LTTE cadres who are in custody.
The Colombo Magistrate’s Court gave this ruling with regard to the LTTE cadres who were arrested while hiding in welfare camps in Vavuniya with the humanitarian operations drawing to a close. Accordingly, these suspects were further remanded until the third of this month. They were nabbed during a raid conducted by the Terrorist Control Unit. Submitting a report to Courts with regards to these suspects, the Police said there is information that there are several hardcore LTTE cadres among them. Inquiry reports have already been directed to the Attorney General and the Police informed the Courts that future action will be determined based on the advice of the Attorney General.
