Malaysia Probes Allegation on Malaysian Link to Bomb Attack in Sri Lanka

Seelan Palay: More absurdity from the Malaysian Government. The article states that the LTTE was waiting for instructions from Malaysia before carrying out tasks - that doesn't even make strategic sense! Seems like another attempt to frame and drag HINDRAF down.

KUALA LUMPUR, June 17 (Bernama)The Home Ministry has begun investigations into an allegation that some Malaysians planned to give instructions to a group of Sri Lankan Tamil Tiger terrorists to launch a bomb attack in Colombo.This followed the arrest of six members of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Ellam (LTTE) on Saturday in Wattala, Sri Lanka, with the seizure of 2.7kg of high-powered C4 explosives.

According to a news report in the Sri Lankan online daily, ‘The Mirror’, the suspects under interrogation by (Sri Lankan government troops), said they were waiting for instructions from some Malaysians - via the telephone - to launch the attack.

Commenting on the news report, Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar said the government would investigate the matter thoroughly, and take severe action against any Malaysian with links to the LTTE.

“There have always been allegations that some Malaysians are involved with the LTTE,” he said.
