Leader of the Tamil United Freedom Front (TUFF) Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan alias Karuna Amman, whose startling comment on the killing of Army soldiers sparked controversy, has made yet another revelation.

Joining ‘Mokada Wune’ programme on TV Derana, he said, late President Ranasinghe Premadasa, during his administration, had supplied weapons and funds to the LTTE and that he was the one who collected the supply.

Karuna Amman also noted that Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) leader Sajith Premadasa is attempting to create a false image of him in the minds of Sinhalese people.

The former LTTE commander-turned-politician added that he never intended to underestimate the Sri Lanka Army in his statement.


In the meantime, the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), in a tweet concerning the controversial statement, said Karuna Amman should also be investigated for wholesale recruitment of child soldiers, a crime under international law.

The UN rights body also stressed that accountability should apply to everyone in Sri Lanka.
