“Pottu Amman is alive and Intelligence unit under his guidance has started its operation in full swing” says Interpol.
Srilankan government that has showed a dead body as Prabhakaran in May 2009 has still not shown appropriate proof for Pottu Amman’s death. This gives lot of hopes to Tamil Diaspora that Pottu Amman is indeed alive though there is doubt in minds of people whether Prabhakaran is alive or not .
Instead of becoming cautious , Srilankan Government has issued a refusal statement saying that Pottu Amman and his wife committed suicide during the last days of Eelam war and since they blew themselves , their body has not been found at all till this day.
On further interrogating, we came to know that Investigative department of Srilanka was on search for Pottu Amman even after the end of the war. It seems that they caught an ex LTTE Cadre, Prabha who had declared them that Pottu was operating with Code name “Kuruvi”. The intelligence unit of SLA had then searched for Kuruvi and even traced to have taken shelter in Velvethai Area. When the intelligence finally made to that place, Kuruvi had already escaped.
It looks like that evidence provided by Srilankan Government to India on the death of Prabhakaran and Pottu Amman was not accepted by Interpol as valid evidence and hence Interpol has now started searching for Pottu Amman.
KP was arrested by Srilankan Intelligence some months before and this some people say was an enacted drama. As per them there was some internal RIFT between different factions of LTTE especially after KP announcing himself as the new LTTE Chief. It is said that when the rift widened, Pottu came out of hiding and it seems have sent some important instructions after which KP was arrested.
The news of Pottu Amman interacting with remaining Cadres has somehow reached Interpol which has now put Pottu Amman’s Name on the search list. Srilankan Government is now worried on the same to such a extent that one of the Defense personnel has given a statement to media persons that some people close to LTTE are still searching for their Leader and Deputy Leader.
It also looks like, an imminent political Leader from TN had received secret message which states that “We are fine and we are almost ready to come out and carry on the armed struggle”. It seems that five other important EELAM loyalist in TN have received this message.
Srilankan Government announcement of suicidal death of Pottu Amman and his wife after around 6-7 months post war itself has raised doubts about the authenticity of the news. Some Eelamist say that eelam supporters have organised for a secret meeting in France and Pottu Amman is likely to make short appearance on the same”
When we asked them whether Pottu Amman would not take charge of LTTE or not, they replied us with a smile that “There is no need for the same”

A Message from US Committee to Support the LTTE
ANTI-TAMIL ATROCITIES: DO WE NEED MORE REASONS TO FIGHT BACK AGAINST GLOBAL DISINTEREST AND CONTINUED BRUTALIZATION OF TAMILS IN THE CAMPS? STANDING UP FOR THE TAMIL PEOPLE AND AGAINST THE GENOCIDE -WHICH HAS ALREADY OCCURRED- IS THE HUMAN RIGHTS DUTY OF ALL PEOPLE WORLDWIDE – MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD!!!
(Newser) – America knows MIA as the rapper who dropped rhymes—and nearly a baby—at the Grammy Awards, but she’s a far more divisive figure in Sri Lanka, the New York Times reports. MIA’s father is a leader in the Tamil Tigers and critics say the rapper, whose videos are loaded with Tamil imagery, is an apologist for the rebels.
Being a prominent Tamil in Western media provides a “great opportunity to sort of bring forward what’s going on in Sri Lanka,” MIA said last month while discussing the government’s anti-rebel offensive. “There’s a genocide going on.” Sri Lankans from the country’s majority Sinhalese community say she’s lucky to get away with speaking in favor of a group branded as terrorists by the US government.

Sri Krishna Janmastami Celebration in Tamil Eelam – these days will come again!
NORTHEAST COAST, Sri Lanka (AP) — Sri Lanka’s former war zone is a wasteland, its earth scorched and pocked by craters. Cars and trucks lie overturned near bunkers beside clusters of battered tents.
The government has denied firing heavy weapons into what had been a battlefield densely populated with civilians. But the helicopter tour the military gave U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and a group of journalists Saturday revealed widespread devastation.
Civilians who escaped the zone said they came under intense shelling from both the rebels and the government.
“We ran for our lives from the shelling in the north,” said one man who gave his name as Krishnathurai. “It was coming from both sides, the Tamil Tigers and the military, and we were stuck in the middle.”
The sandy coastal strip where the final battles of the quarter-century civil war were fought was dotted with patches of charred earth and deep recessions. Dark craters were visible amid the grayish earth along the coast.
One area was thick with endless rows of tents, many of them knocked down and damaged. Abandoned vehicles were overturned, some reduced to burnt skeletons. Some huts with thatch roofs were destroyed, others had no roofs.
In one area near the tents, bunkers appeared to have been constructed of sandbags and barrels.
Along a nearby beach lay a large boat with the rebels’ roaring tiger emblem.
After touring the area, Ban said the trapped civilians must have undergone “most inhumane suffering.”
The government declared victory over the rebels Monday in the civil war that began in 1983.
In the final weeks, with the rebels boxed into a tiny coastal strip and tens of thousands of civilians trapped inside the battlefield, the government said it would no longer fire heavy weapons.
But government doctors in the area — as well as human rights groups and foreign leaders — said intense shelling continued, killing hundreds of civilians. The U.N. Human Rights Council has planned a special session on Sri Lanka on Monday in Geneva amid international calls for a war crimes investigation into the military’s conduct.
According to private U.N. documents, at least 7,000 civilians were killed in the final months of fighting.
The military said again Saturday it had not shelled the area, and blamed the craters on rebel fighters.
“We heard many explosions even in the last days as they exploded their ammunition dumps,” military spokesman Brig. Udaya Nanayakkara said.
But many of the trapped civilians, now living behind barbed wire in displacement camps, spoke of unrelenting shelling.
“We walked for three days to get here. We were shelled and bombed. There was no food. Both sides were shelling us,” said an elderly woman who gave her name as Lechchami.
Another woman, Krishnaleela, 42, said her family came under shelling from the military and one of her children was killed.
At the Manik Farm displacement camp, some civilians said there was little food or water. They complained they were not allowed to leave and that their male relatives had been detained by the military, presumably under suspicion they were rebel fighters.
“I don’t know where my husband is,” Krishnaleela said.
Ban appealed to the government to quickly improve conditions for the nearly 300,000 ethnic Tamil civilians displaced by the fighting. He also called for aid groups to get unfettered access to the camps and welcomed Rajapaksa’s promise to resettle the bulk of the displaced by the end of the year.
“We will try to work hard to make sure that promise is realized,” he said as he toured the vast expanse of white tents neatly lined up in rows on dirt paths.
Roads between the tents were crammed with people, and barbed wire fences encircled the area, keeping the tens of thousands of civilians from getting out. Soldiers were stationed across the camp.
Mark Cutts, a senior U.N. humanitarian officer, said Manik Farm was erected almost overnight and is the world’s largest displacement camp.
“There’s 200,000 people here. This is a very overcrowded place, a very big place, and there’s a lot of work still to be done. Conditions, you can see, they’re very basic,” he said.
After his tour of the battlefield, Ban flew to the central city of Kandy. There he met with Rajapaksa after the nation’s top Buddhist monks presented the president with the country’s highest honor at a temple reputed to house the Buddha’s tooth.
Ban and other world leaders have called on Rajapaksa to quickly address the grievances of the country’s minorities in the wake of the war. The Tamils, 18 percent of the population, claim systematic discrimination and harassment by the Sinhalese majority.
Postscript from the US Committee to Support the LTTE: When reviewing the article above, we would ask readers to pay attention to two specific points: 1.) Why did it take hundreds of thousands of Tamil civilians being confined in what has now been described as the world’s largest concentration camp in order for the Associated Press to publish even somewhat truthful accounts concerning the massive humanitarian crisis and genocidal activities taking place in northern Sri Lanka? 2.) Why has the United Nations played apologist until the very last minute to the demon Rajapaksa and his packs of Buddhist extremist cronies in their racist crusade against Tamils and why have they only decided to make cursory statements only after the DEATH of over 25,000 TAMILS? LTTE IS THE VOICE OF TAMILS – all who support human dignity and freedom should prepare for an unprecedented resurgence in the fight for Tamil Eelam. FORWARD – LIBERATION TIGERS OF TAMIL EELAM! LONG LIVE PRABHAKARAN!
