Commemorations to mark former LTTE leader Velupillai Prabhakaran were reported from several northern areas including Jaffna, Jaffna University and Prabhakaran’s birthplace, Velvetithurai this morning.

Earlier, Jaffna Magistrate had issued a restraining order not to use the LTTE emblem, its uniforms or flag in any form of commemorations.

However, regardless of the court order, it was reported that a group of students had stealthily celebrated Prabhakaran inside the Jaffna University.

They had pasted portraits of Prabhakaran on the walls of the University building as well.

However, when our news team contacted university authorities, they denied any such actions.

Meanwhile, a former Northern provincial councillor, MK Sivajilingam told our news team that he and three of his fellow supporters were arrested by police while they were heading to Velvetithurai to commemorate Prabhakaran’s birthday.

However, a spokesman from Velvetithurai police stated that they did not arrest Sivajilingam or any of his supporters but called them to police to record a statement.

Meanwhile, the Government Information Department has stated in a communiqué that no room whatsoever has been granted to celebrate Mahaviru commemoration.
