Did London high commission officials support the LTTE Diaspora? PDF Print E-mail
The National Intelligence Bureau has launched top level investigations in to the activities of some officials attached to the Sri Lankan High Commission in London, who had been supportive to the Tamil Diaspora during the recent visit of the President to London. Govt sources revealed that a discussion in this regard was held between the foreign ministry and the NIB recently in this regard.

The International media revealed that British Tamil Forum, World Tamil Forum and pro Tiger organization named NT along with Tamil Youth Forum were active behind the protest campaign held in London against the President. It is also said that these international pro LTTE groups have given 100,000 British pounds for this campaign. The International media also said that these organizations have also launched a special operation against Sri Lanka collectively, which is called Operation Strom.

Separately from the investigations, it is been reported that the foreign ministry is now facing a serious allegation of not showing the President a very important letter sent by the Sri Lankan High Commission in London asking the President not to come to London because of intense protest campaigns being organized by the Tamil Diaspora there.

This report was sent by Sri Lankan High commissioner in London Mr. Nihal Jayasinghe and because some people hid this report the President and the govt had to face a lot of embarrassment. It is also learnt that the warning sent by the SLFP branch office in London to the President, has also not been received by him.

Meanwhile the Sri Lanka High Commission in London has taken steps to officially protest to the British govt against allowing the display of LTTE flags and symbols of the LTTE at agitations held in London against the President in Sri Lanka. It is reported that acting Sri Lankan high commissioner in London P.M. Amsa has already taken steps to complain to the British authorities over their failure to prevent the display of LTTE flags at these agitations and the failure of the London police to take any action in this regard as the LTTE is proscribed in London that makes it illegal to display LTTE flags and symbols.  They also said that this failure of the British police is rather dubious.
