The government is to initiate legal action soon against some former hardcore LTTE cadres.

A committee of legal councils appointed to look into the pending cases under the Prevention of Terrorism Act announced that it has finalized the prosecution process.

Additional Solicitor General Suhada Gamlath said that the government would file cases against 60 former LTTE cadres.

The Committee had reportedly checked out some 300 files of LTTE detainees and about 150 ex-combatants in order to send those without any evidence of serious crimes for rehabilitation.

The Terrorists Investigation Division was investigating into 80 more former LTTE cadres based on new evidence received on their involvement in the conflict.

Meanwhile, another batch of rehabilitated former LTTE cadres are to be reintegrated into society by the end of this month.

The government has reintegrated 10, 979 former LTTE members so far and only 779 more currently remain at the rehabilitation centers in the country.
