Former Chief of the LTTE’s international wing Kumaran Pathmanathan states that three countries had offered the LTTE protection under a deal to end the war during the final stages of the conflict.
In an interview with Maldivian newspaper Haveeru, Pathmanathan, also known as KP, said that two African countries and one in Asia offered protection after he had communicated with the governments of those countries.
KP said that he pushed LTTE leader Vellupillai Prabakaran to accept the deal but the attempts had failed resulting in the ultimate defeat of the LTTE by the army.
Meanwhile Opposition Leader of Tamilnadu Muththuweil Karunanidhi has urged the intervention of the Indian centre with concern to the redistribution of lands in the North East to its rightful owners, the tamil population which had fled the region during the conflict.
Karunanidhi has also urged the intervention of the United Nations in this regard.
