Promoting LTTE under guise of charity

The Global Sri Lanka Forum (GSLF) has complained to the British authorities that LTTE activists displayed the logo of their organisation, which is banned in the UK, at an event, where food and beverages were donated to the St. Mark’s Hospital, in Harrow.

The GSLF has said that the Tamil Coordinating Committee (UK) organised the event and used the donation as an excuse for displaying the LTTE logo.

Although the organizers couldn't be faulted for providing required items, as the entire world battled CPVID-19, attempts to promote the LTTE couldn't be tolerated, under any circumstances, a spokesperson for the GSLF told The Island.

The spokesperson said the World Tamil Coordinating Committee had been designated as a front for the LTTE, under paragraph 4(2) of the United Nations Regulations No. 1 of 2012.
