NFF questions lifting of proscription


The National Freedom Front (NFF) yesterday demanded the Defence Ministry to immediately reveal the rationale behind the decision to lift the proscription of six international Tamil organisations that had been banned in the country.

NFF Spokesman MP Mohammad Muzammil said the ban was lifted on the Global Tamil Forum, Global Tamil Coordinating Committee, People’s Liberation Organisation of Tamil Eelam, Australian Tamil Congress, British Tamil Forum and Canadian Tamil Congress.

“These organisations had been working against Sri Lanka for a long time.

The Ministry of Defence should tell the country on what basis the ban on these organisations was removed,” he said.

Meanwhile, he alleged the political parties who behave like YouTube heroes by neglecting their responsibilities should be kicked out at the upcoming elections.

He made these comments at a press conference held at National Freedom Front head office.
