[b]Colombo, 06 October, (Asiantribune.com): [/b]Sri Lankan Army in an exclusive report has questioned the bona fides on Non-government organizations working with Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam , after the spate of arrests of HUMEDICA boats, given to tsunami-affected fishermen with large stocks of arms and belonging to Tamil Tiger (LTTE) in Kankesanthurai and Point Pedro seas along with Tamil Tiger cadres aboard.

Sri Lanka Army report insist that the bona fides of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) working in the north and east are called into question once again by authorities as naval troops continue to arrest more and more stocks of arms and ammunition from Tamil Tiger (LTTE) boats that have been originally donated as tsunami aids by those NGOs to affected fishermen.

The NGO, “HUMEDICA” of German origin, reportedly engaged in humanitarian and medical assistance work in the north for some time, is learnt to have distributed some boats among tsunami victims several months ago after many fishermen were badly affected in the tragedy , the Army reports explains.
