The Indian State Government yesterday submitted before the Unlawful
Activities Prevention Tribunal an affidavit, and supporting documents
running to two volumes, justifying the notification issued by the
Union Home Ministry banning the LTTE in the country.

The affidavit and supporting documents also contained information on
banned groups, such as the Tamil National Retrieval Group, Tamil Nadu
Liberation Front and Tamil Nadu Liberation army, all with alleged
secessionist objectives, and their overt and covert activities.

There was also evidence on cadre of some of these organisations who
received their training from the LTTE in Sri Lanka and later sent back
to TN.

MDMK general secretary Vaiko posed several questions through the judge
to the officer, including if he knew about the dismantling of the
PFLT, the political wing of the Tigers, as early as in 1991, when the
LTTE was still a legal association in the country.

To this, the officer replied that the PFLT had not been officially
dissolved and no communication to that effect had been made by leaders
of the LTTE.

The next hearing of the tribunal has been posted to October 20th and
21st in Kodaikanal.
