Northern Tamils live with a pro-LTTE mindset – Sri Lankan minister

Sri Lanka’s deputy minister of law and order has accused Tamils in the North to be living with a pro-LTTE mindset.

Speaking at a press conference held in Colombo, Mr Nalin Bandara Jayamaha said: ‘There is only a pro-LTTE mindset among the people in the area and that will be got rid of sooner or later. It will not be easy but we will do it. We will not allow the LTTE come back again.’

‘Intelligence units are on alert. Terrorism prevention units are active in the North,’ the deputy minister added.
