CASTIS delegation succeeded in making the Danes aware of the brutality of the LTTE during the past 25 years making people to suffer and live with fear.

Danes mentioned that the security situation and random terror incidents throughout the country, targeting innocent children, women, elderly people and many more, overshadows the beauty of the country and prevent Danish people visiting Sri Lanka.

Therefore the terrorists and terrorism must be defeated to bring back peace and harmony in order to make Sri Lanka strong in the future as an active member of the international society.

CASTIS has also started up a web-site (
