Sri Lanka appoints military intelligence officer as ambassador for Eritrea to curb LTTE activities there

(November 15, Colombo - Lanka Polity) Following the recent exposures from the recently arrested leader of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Ealam rebel movement, the government of Sri Lanka has decided to appoint a senior military intelligence officer as Sri Lanka Ambassador for Eritrea.

The New Ambassador previously acted as the Director of Military Intelligence of Sri Lanka Army.

According to local media, the captured LTTE leader Selvarasa Pathmanathan alias Kumaran Pathmanathan  revealed that the LTTE had obtained support of Eritrea for its international arms procurements and fund raising activities.

Sri Lanka government eliminated the founder and leader of the LTTE Velupillai Prabakaran on May 18 in the battlefields in northern Sri Lanka decimating the rebel apparatus that led for a 30-year war in the country. LTTE, that fought for a Tamil homeland in the northern and eastern parts of the South Asian island mustered massive support from Tamil diaspora worldwide.

However, LTTE was banned by many Western nations as a terrorist outfit.
