KP - Gota joint operation to suppress the remnants of the LTTE

(August 12, 2009 - Lanka Polity) Reliable sources reveal that KP, a.k.a Selvarasa Pathmanathan or Kumaran Pathanathan who was captured in Malaysia and brought to Colombo by Sri Lanka government is now assisting the government to crack down on the remnants of his organization locally and internationally. KP was appointed the General Secretary of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Ealam (LTTE) after his leader Velupillai Prabakaran was killed by government forces on May 18, 2009 at a location in Mullaithivu district of the Northern Province of Sri Lanka. KP is the senior-most remaining leader of the LTTE.

The brother of the President Mahinda Rajapakse, Defense Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapakse, who excelled in defeating one the most sophisticated and long lasted guerrilla movement, had one to one talks with KP immediately after he was brought to Colombo, reliable sources say.

Unconfirmed reports say that KP was captured and brought to Colombo following an undisclosed understanding between him and the government.

KP was handling a major military supply and business wing of the LTTE. In the last phase of the military onslaught against the Tiger movement, LTTE leader appointed him as the plenipotentiary of the organization. He was consolidating as the leader of the organization amidst resistance of some other LTTE seniors by the time he was captured at a hotel in Kuala Lampur last week.

Meanwhile, the sources say that the government has prepared a plan to suppress the military, organizational and fund raising networks of the LTTE even without leaving space for the Tamil nationalist separatism to raise its head.
