Former LTTE female leader to begin rehabilitation


The former female political wing leader of LTTE Subramaniam Sivathai alias Thamalini will undergo rehabilitation from Monday (July 01) Commissioner General of Rehabilitation, Brigadier, Dharshana Hettiarachchi said.

Thamalini will commence a year-long rehabilitation program at the Poonthottam Open-Air Rehabilitation Center in Vavuniya.
During her rehabilitation she will receive vocational training, educational and sports opportunities.

A court last week ordered Thamilini to be sent for rehabilitation on her own consent and the government has said it has no objection to the order.

Thamalini had been in remand custody since her arrest by a special police team on May 27, 2009 at the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camp in Vavuniya. She was charged with training LTTE cadres and establishing connections with LTTE members overseas.

She joined the LTTE in 1991 and received battle training in a LTTE camp in Nirveli. She has been a combatant until the end of the war.
