Pro-LTTE attack on Sri Lanka embassy, Netherlands


A pro-LTTE group, supportive of the LTTE’s international terror campaign, attacked the Sri Lanka Embassy in The Hague, the capital of the Netherlands 11th May, at around 10.30.p.m.

The Embassy said the attackers broke some window panes and caused damage to the Embassy premises. They then attempted to break into the Embassy premises without success. They had to leave without causing further damage, as the security alarm had gone off and the Police responded immediately.

The Sri Lanka Embassy has made representations to the Dutch Foreign Ministry condemning the attack and requested the Dutch Government to tighten the security of the Mission and ensure the safety of its staff.

It has called for a thorough investigation into the attack, and also for the perpetrators to be apprehended and brought to justice. The Police have taken fingerprints and recorded statements, as part of the ongoing investigation.
