The Sri Lanka government has sought the advice of the country’s Attorney General how to freeze more than 600 bank accounts belonging to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) terrorist outfit.

Government sources said the minute details of these bank accounts have been divulged by Kumaran Pathmanathan (KP) who succeeded the outfit’s slain leader Velupillai Prabhakaran and the former procurer of arms , now in the custody of the Sri Lanka government. KP was arrested by Sri Lankan intelligence officers in Kulalumpur and flown to Sri Lanka.

Yesterday, it was revealed in Colombo that three arms and human smuggling ships of the LTTE had been seized by the country’s navy outside Sri Lanka and are being brought back to the country under tight security.

The 600 bank accounts containing the ill-gotten money of the outfit are spread across the world in different countries, KP has revealed.

Sri Lanka government has been slowly extracting information from KP about the millions of worth LTTE assets deposited in many banks across the world.

The detectives who have been extracting the information from KP are now working with the Attorney General’s office to freeze the accounts one by one.

The government sources did not reveal the amount of cash available in the LTTE accounts. But it is widely believed it could run into billions.

Earlier it had been estimated the number of accounts of the terrorist outfit was 1582 but the sources have attributed the new figure of 600 to statistics divulged by KP.
