LTTE Commemorates "Col" Kittu and nine others tomorrow

By a Special Correspondent

London, 26 January, ( Defying British laws on terrorism and the ban on the LTTE, the Tigers are planning to commemorate the death anniversary of "Col" Kittu and nine others who died in mid-sea when they blew themselves up when confronted by the Indian navy several years ago.

Sathasivam Krishnakumar, known as Col Kittu was a senior commander of the LTTE and one time Jaffna commander.

The 14th death anniversary is scheduled to be commemorated today at 5pm at the Waltham Forest Theatre in Walthamstow in east London.

The commemoration was kept under wraps until the two days ago for fear of police action or the event being reported to the authorities by the Tamil public which has become tired of the LTTE's constant demands for money and support for their events.

The posters distributed to Tamil shops particularly in East London show that 13 businesses are supporting this event. Among the businesses whose names appear on the posters supporting this LTTE event are Saranavabhavan's a vegetarian restaurant initially from Tamil Nadu; Ragu travels and estate agencies, KKS King burgers; Masala and a Hindu temple devoted to Lord Ganesh, the Sri Kaththaka Vinayagam Aalaiyam temple.

The posters carry the photograph of Kittu and the nine others who died with him.

The ban on the LTTE under the Terrorism Act prohibits the display of any signs, symbols and flags of the LTTE, the glorification of terrorism and terrorist acts and any espousal of the cause of terrorist organizations.
