CEASE FIRE AND THE "CRIMINAL ACTS"
Prof. Hudson McLean
Whilst "Unrelated Criminal Acts" as claimed, "do not violate the Cease Fire Agreement, such criminal acts", as suggested by Chief Norwegian Monitor Trond Furuhovde, "are unrelated to the cease fire", can be the tiny spark needed to blow the roof.
Since Mr. Furuhovde suggests that such matters are within the jurisdiction of the law enforcement officers, Mr. John Ameratunge must buckle up and send in his Police officers to investigate.
In fairness to all citizens of Sri lanka in general and LTTE and the Tamil citizens in particular, the Minister of Home Affairs must act immediately and investigate the complaints.
It may be prudent that the investigating officers be unarmed and are accompanied by several officers of the Monitors, for a good measure.
It is in the interests of the LTTE to render full cooperation to the investigating officers to ensure that the facts are exposed, whether they be malicious rumours or if some of the marginals are acting on their own.
LTTE leadership can demonstrate that they are supporting a Free and a Fair Democratic policy. After all it can cut both ways!
