The Security forces have been unwilling to take on the Karuna faction by using the rule of law, British High Commissioner Dominick Chilcott said at a reception on Thursday evening, at the British Council to introduce a unique cooperation between the German Development Cooperation (GTZ) and the British Council in Colombo, Chilcott, who was the Guest of Honour said, `and in that context I welcome the story in today`s The Island newspaper.`
He said that The Island, on Thursday on Page 3, reported a story on the questioning of three members of the Karuna faction on email threats.
He said that the fighting between the LTTE and the Karuna faction is not doing any good to the situation in the north and east and when the LTTE stops fighting there will be no LTTE.
Chilcott said that the Government intervention to stop what is happening is insufficient.
He also said that the services rendered by non-governmental organizations have to be recognized.
Referring to the north and east, he said that people have lost everything and this has to be recognized fully.
A large number of high ranking central and provincial Government officials, and the German Ambassador Juergen Weerth who was the Chief Guest attended the reception.
