Passports of LTTE supporters leaving for Geneva to be photocopied

Paris, 10 June, ( Police has planned to collect information regarding those leaving from France to Switzerland to participate in the protest march organized by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam to be held tomorrow.

The protest march timed to be held on 11 June, the opening day of the 5th session of the Human Rights Commission (June 11 to 18.)

Tigers are making arrangements to bring their supporters in hundreds from all the European Union countries to Geneva to participate in the protest march. Pro-LTTE news portals earlier revealed that in Denmark LTTE is chartering a flight to take their supporters to Geneva.

In the meantime, from Paris Tamil Tigers tried to take their supporters in a special train from Paris to Geneva. It is now learnt, according to sources, the idea of taking their supporters by a special train is given up as only a score of Tamil supporters only registered with their agents.

Now, Tamil Tigers in Paris are arranging a few buses to take their people to Geneva.

On the April Fools Day 19 leading Tamil Tigers members were arrested and 14 of them are still in custody and inquiries are proceeding. Under this backdrop Police are monitoring the activities of the Tamil supporters very closely.

“Asian Tribune” learnt that Police are preparing dossiers about LTTE supporters. As one of their measure is to photocopy the passports and travel documents of all those Tamil supporters of the LTTE leaving from France to Geneva.

Similarly earlier fifty Tamils who worked in the French main airports were discontinued from their positions once the French Police concluded that all of them were active supporters of the LTTE.

A source who wishes to remain anonymous told “Asian Tribune,” that photocopies of the passports and Travel documents would be considered a number one evidence for the Police to decide in the future about those people who might apply for visas, permanent residency and also for employment in sensitive Government institutions.
