[b] Colombo, 09 Colombo, ([/b] Accusing Velupillai Prabhakaran of converting the reasonable struggle of Tamils into a brutal terrorist campaign Thooyavan, spokesperson of the TamilElam Makkal Viduthalai Pulika (Col. Karuna's group) declared that the LTTE leader should be tried before an International Criminal Court like Slobodan Milosevic or Charles Taylor.

"The redemption and the liberation of the Tamils will begin only on that day," he told the Asian Tribune.

He said: "We took up arms to fight, believing with confidence that the answer to our struggle is Tamil Eelam. But our objective has changed and turned into brutal terrorism. It was Prabakaran who converted the reasonable struggle of the Tamils into a mindless campaign of terrorism ," said Thooyavan,

"What Prabakaran and his colleagues are involved today is not a struggle towards achieving Tamil Eelam. Not a struggle even for the people’s welfare. It is clear today that they have lost the original purpose of their struggle.
