IGP warns local supporters of Tamil Tigers

 

KUALA LUMPUR: Police warned that the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Elam (LTTE) is an illegal organisation and action can be taken against Malaysians who support the group.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said police would investigate local groups who protested against former Sri Lankan president Mahinda Rajapaksa last week.

“I want to warn these groups which support the LTTE that it is a group that is banned by the United Nations.

“We, as a UN signatory country, can take action against them (supporters),” he told reporters after launching the Inspector-General of Police Gallery at Bukit Aman.

Police have arrested five people, ages 27 to 56, and are looking for four more over the assault on Sri Lanka’s High Commissioner to Malaysia Ibrahim Ansar at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport on Sunday.

Five held over attack on Sri Lanka ambassador

 

KUALA LUMPUR: Police said they have arrested five people after a group of protesters assaulted the Sri Lankan high commissioner at Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

Malaysian authorities said the attack on High Commissioner Ibrahim Sahib Ansar on Sunday left him with minor injuries, but they have so far given no details on the identities or background of the attackers.

“Five people have been arrested and we are investigating the motive for the attack,” Abdul Samah Mat, police chief of Selangor state, told AFP.

In Colombo Sri Lanka’s Foreign Secretary Esala Weerakoon summoned Malaysia’s top envoy, Wan Zaidi Wan Abdullah, and demanded adequate security for Colombo’s diplomatic mission.

The foreign ministry expressed “disappointment that the Malaysian authorities had failed to provide necessary protection” despite warnings of a possible threat.

Almost 100 ethnic Indian protesters had gathered in Kuala Lumpur last week to rally against former Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa, who was attending an international conference, local media reported.

Rajapaksa ordered the bloody military assault which ended Sri Lanka’s war with Tamil separatist guerrillas in 2009.
