Italy- Lanka Anti-Terrorist Organisation launched

ITALY: An Italy-Sri Lanka Anti-Terrorist Organisation was established in Rome under the guidance of Sri Lanka’s Ambassador to Rome Hemantha Warnakulasuriya P.C.

The first project of this association is a website, in Italian, which will be devoted to the brutal atrocities committed by the LTTE. It will have videos of the attempted killing of Minister Douglas Devananda by a suicide bomber and the killing of Minister Jeyaraj Fernandopulle.

The President of Italian-Sri Lanka Anti Terrorist Organisation (ISATO) told the Asian Tribune that until he met some Sri Lankans, he did not know the intensity of the terrorist problem that Sri Lanka was facing.

“I did not know that famed investigation institutions such as the FBI had described the LTTE as the most ruthless terrorist organisation in the world, even ahead of the dreaded al-Qaeda. That it has direct links with avowed terrorist organisation in the world like Al Qaeda is not known to most of us.

Italians knows nothing about the LTTE, other than that it is a liberation movement claiming to liberate the Tamils from oppressive Sinhalese governments.

We sympathized with them not knowing the true facts. When I studied this organization and its capability, I found that it is a threat to all civilized people in the world. It will kill you or drug and brainwash you to turn you into a suicide bomber,” he said.

“The Western governments have for a long time paid lip service to these ruthless terrorists. When the Sri Lankan government is fighting the terrorists, with the limited resources at its disposal, for the betterment of every civilized human being, we sometimes, by our actions support the most ruthless terrorist organization in the world.

The time has come to educate every single Italian and then we will, in the near future, strive to educate the French and the Germans.

We will have the web pages in Italian, French and German so that most Europeans will know the truth about these ruthless terrorists. We hoped to launch the website on the day when Sinhalese and Tamils celebrate the New Year with a sense of brotherhood,” he said.
