Sri Lankan minister says arrested LTTE leader’s services could be used to counter international allegations

Apr 29, Colombo: A Sri Lankan government minister says former LTTE international wing head and chief arms procurer Kumaran Pathmanatahan alias KP could be used by the government to respond to international allegations.

Cabinet Spokesperson and Minister Keheliya Rambukwella has told the media that the government could use KP to counter the report by the Experts Panel of UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

Rambukwella has made the comment in response to a question posed by a journalist.

He has said the government would use KP to counter allegations if the need arose.

Since his arrest by the Sri Lankan authorities in August 2009 from his hideout in a South Asian country, KP has provided government with some valuable information on the structure and assets of the LTTE overseas establishments and has helped identifying escaped Tiger leaders.
