About Selvarajah Pathmanathan

Selvarajah Pathmanathan is the Diplomatic chief and International relations head of Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam. On May 18, 2009, he announced that the LTTE battle is coming to a 'bitter end' and that it will be laying down its arms. He, however, claimed that V Prabhakaran is still alive and healthy rejecting Sri Lankan army claims. He accused Colombo of treachery in the killing of the political wing leaders, and said it is a crime against humanity that needs to be investigated. On May 25, 2009, Sri Lanka's Defence Secretary, Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, has appealed to the international community to help Colombo arrest key LTTE operative Kumaran Pathmanathan alias KP.
