The JVP yesterday called upon the Government to abrogate the ceasefire agreement which is non-existent according to the LTTE.
`LTTE leader Prabhakaran in his Heroes` day speech accused the Government of paving the way for the collapse of the ceasefire by withdrawing unilaterally. In other words, he says he too is not bound by the agreement, which is non-existent. So, we demand the Government to declare it null and void officially,` JVP Parliamentary Group Leader Wimal Weerawansa, said in a special statement in parliament.
`We would like to ask the Government why it allows the group of Scandinavian pensioners, identified as truce monitors, to stay any further in this country.`
Weerawansa described the Heroes` day speech` by the LTTE leader, on his 53rd birthday, as `wailing out of frustration.`
`The speech is full of wailing and moaning. He is now convinced that loss is inevitable and there is only one possibility and that is to get the international community involved. He has no other way except for the international community to go to his rescue and help him carve out his dream nation. Prabhakaran pleads with the international community to repeat what it did in East Timor and Kosovo.`
He is frustrated after his outfit suffered heavy losses and this was manifest on the eve of his birthday when the LTTE fired mortar on teachers and school children. The killing of four unarmed civilians is also another example,` Weerawansa said.
He urged the Government to make use of this opportunity to drive the final nail into the coffin.
`In the meantime we must be vigilant to the behaviour of the international bosses of the LTTE. We should monitor their next step,` he said.
He said the government should capitalize on the admission by the LTTE leader that the CFA is non-existent and make an official declaration to that effect.
