Sri Lanka snares new Tamil Tiger head overseas

Fri Aug 7, 2009 3:02pm BST

COLOMBO (Reuters) - Sri Lanka on Friday said it had captured and was interrogating the new head of the Tamil Tigers, their most-wanted target since crushing the separatist rebels and their 25-year insurrection in May.
But mystery remained over exactly where Selvarajah Pathmanathan, who ran the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam's (LTTE) lucrative arms and smuggling operations for decades, was arrested.
Pathmanathan is the public face of the LTTE's post-war remnants and the highest-ranking Tiger still alive, after troops killed LTTE founder Vellupillai Prabhakaran in the war's cataclysmic final battle on the northeastern coast on May 18.
The fact that Pathmanathan was in Sri Lankan custody helped push the Colombo Stock Exchange to its highest level in more than 14 months, gaining 0.7 percent in the first 90 minutes of trade.
Sri Lanka declined to say where he was arrested, after initially saying Pathmanathan -- better known by his nickname KP -- had been picked up in Thailand.
"We are quite capable of demolishing LTTE activities anywhere in the world. We have the capacity and assistance," defence spokesman Keheliya Rambukwella said.
Thailand's prime minister on Friday denied Pathmanathan had been arrested there. The LTTE, in an emailed statement, said he had been arrested by Malaysian intelligence officers on Wednesday, but Malaysian authorities denied that.
Sri Lankan officials said diplomatic necessities precluded naming the exact location where he was arrested.
"It is a sensitive issue and the government wants to respect the wishes of all parties involved," a senior Sri Lankan official told Reuters on condition of anonymity.
Thai authorities arrested Pathmanathan in 2007 and were ready to hand him over on condition their involvement was not known.
But he escaped after Sri Lanka publicised his arrest there, and Thailand denied he was ever in custody, diplomats with knowledge of the incident say. Earlier this year, Sri Lanka was infuriated when a European diplomat met KP in Kuala Lumpur.
Sri Lanka has stepped up diplomatic and intelligence efforts to hunt down Pathmanathan since he assumed the mantle of the new LTTE leader after Prabhakaran's death.
After a brief feud with other LTTE officials overseas, which analysts say was over control of the hundreds of millions in hidden Tiger assets, Pathmanathan emerged as the new leader.
He pledged to create a government-in-exile to push the LTTE's vision a separate nation for Sri Lanka's minority Tamils in a non-violent and democratic way.
One of the original Tigers, Pathmanathan dodged authorities for nearly three decades and built the LTTE's smuggling, weapons procurement and fundraising capacity into a multi-million dollar enterprise known as the "KP Department."
At the height of his powers, KP operated a fleet of freighters for smuggling, dealt in arms bazaars in Eritrea, to Afghanistan and Ukraine and raised millions from fundraising appeals and outright extortion from expatriate Tamils.
Long believed to be in hiding in bases from Myanmar, Malaysia and Thailand, he had dozens of passports and more than enough money to buy his way out of trouble -- security experts say the LTTE was earning between $200 (119 million pounds)-300 million annually.
However, the LTTE's presence on U.S., EU, Indian and Canadian terrorist lists sharply curtailed his operations, and KP re-emerged earlier this year when Prabhakaran named his old friend the LTTE's head of international relations.

தமிழீழ விடுதலைப் புலிகளின் தலைவர் பிரபாகரனின் செய்மதி தொலைபேசி குமரன் பத்மநாதனைக் கைதுசெய்ய உதவியதா?

நந்திக்கடற்களப்பில் கைப்பற்றியதாகக் கூறப்படும் செய்மதி தொலைபேசி ஒன்று பிரபாகரனுக்குச் சொந்தமானது எனவும், அதில் காணப்பட்ட மற்றொரு செய்மதி தொலைபேசி இலக்கத்தை வைத்தே தாம் குமரன் பத்மநாதன் நடமாட்டத்தை அறிந்ததாகவும் இலங்கைப் புலனாய்வுப் பிரிவினர் ரோய்ட்டர்ஸ் செய்திச் சேவைக்குத் தெரிவித்துள்ளனர்.
பெயர் குறிப்பிட விரும்பாத மூன்று அதிகாரிகள் இத் திடுக்கிடும் தகவல்களைத் தெரிவித்துள்ளனர்.

செய்மதி தொலைபேசியில் இருந்த இலக்கத்தினூடாக, மற்றைய செய்மதி தொலைபேசியின் இலக்கத்தைப் பெற்ற இலங்கை புலனாய்வுப் பிரிவினர், பின்னர் அது ஆசிய நாடு ஒன்றில் இருந்து பாவிக்கப்படுவதை அறிந்ததாகவும், சிங்கப்பூர், மலேசியா, மற்றும் தாய்லாந்து ஆகிய 3 நாடுகளுக்கும் இலங்கையில் இருந்து 3 புலனாய்வுப் பிரிவினர் அனுப்பப்பட்டதாகவும் தெரிவித்துள்ளனர்.

குமரன் பத்மநாதனை கைதுசெய்வது தமது நோக்கமல்ல என்று தெரிவித்த அந்த அதிகாரிகள், அவரை சுட்டுக்கொல்லவே தாம் ஆட்களை அனுப்பியதாக ஒப்புக்கொண்டுள்ளனர்.

எனினும் புதன்கிழமை மாலை அவர் கைதுசெய்யப்பட்டார் என்ற தகவல் தமக்கு கிடைத்ததாகத் தெரிவித்த அவ்வதிகாரிகள், இறுதி நேரத்தில் அவரை கொல்லும் திட்டம் மாற்றப்பட்டு, உயிருடன் பிடிக்குமாறு மேலதிகாரிகள் உத்தரவிட்டதாகத் தெரிவித்துள்ளனர்.

இதே நேரம் தாய்லாந்து பிரதமர் அப்சிட் வெஜ்யஜிவா, தமது நாட்டில்வைத்து குமரன் பத்மநாதன் இலங்கை புலனாய்வுப் பிரிவினரால் கைதுசெய்யப்பட்டாரா என அறியுமாறு தாய்லாந்து புலனாய்வுப் பிரிவினருக்கு உத்தரவிட்டிருப்பதாகக் கூறப்படுகிறது. அமெரிக்க FBI பாணியில் வேற்று நாட்டில் ஊடுருவி, எதிரியை கைதுசெய்துள்ளது இலங்கை அரசு. இச் செயலானது, இவ் இரு நாடுகளுக்குமிடையே பரஸ்பரம் உள்ள நல்லுறவைப் பாதிக்கலாம்.

soon after the second world war Isarler adopted this kind of strategy and it was really successful.

They nabbed the notorious Nazi leader Eikman while he was living in Argentina.

SO we must also learn lessons form Israel and deploy some top class hunters to get Pooh kana pillai and all the other morons

Rajapaksha Doctrine
The Rajapaksha Doctrine is a Sri Lankan policy introduced on May 18, 2009, which says that further efforts by foreign governments or individuals based in foreign countries to interfere in the affairs of Lanka would be viewed by the Sri Lankan government as acts of aggression requiring SL intervention.

The Rajapaksha Doctrine asserted that if a current or former Sri Lankan citizen expresses his or her opinion within the country or abroad that imagined Tamil Nation is entitled to form an independent state in their imagined historical homeland of the island on the basis of imagined Tamil nationhood , homeland and right to self determination , it is a punishable offense under the sixth amendment of the Sri Lankan constitution, and he or she will be duly arrested anywhere in the world and delivered to proper authorities in Colombo to be dealt with promptly.
