Police spokesman Ajith Rohana said several LTTE leaders are known to be living abroad.
“We obtain a warrant against anyone who has not served his or her jail sentence for more than two years. We also inform Interpol with the relevant details,” he said. “Red Notices have also been issued to 56 non-LTTE operatives as well,” he said.
Red Notices have been issued against Vinayagam and Nediyawan who are suspected of financing and re-organising the LTTE.
Nediyawan and Vinayagam are living in Norway and France. The need to track them down arose after Selvanayagam Kajeepan alias ‘Gobi’ killed by security forces last Friday was known to have been in contact with Nediyawan and Vinayagam.
The Tamil Coordinating Committee is said to be headed by Nediyawana while the LTTE Headquarter Group is led by Vinayagam.
The government banned the LTTE and 15 other Tamil diaspora groups over alleged terror links and over attempts at reviving the terrorist movement in Sri Lanka. (Supun Dias and Sanath Desmond)
