Indian tribunal upholds the ban on LTTE

 

An Indian tribunal set up in Chennai to evaluate the Central government's ban on the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) has upheld the ban.

The Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Tribunal has upheld the Central government's order extending the ban on the LTTE issued on May 14, 2012.

Justice V K Jain, who headed the Tribunal, has noted that the LTTE failed to appear before the Tribunal during its hearings in Tamil Nadu to counter the allegations made against it and had failed to declare that it has no connection with organizations that advocate cession of a part of India.

The judge has observed that the evidence produced by the Central government and the Tamil Nadu government are not so "intrinsically unbelievable as to warrant rejection even in the absence of being controverted by the LTTE."
