The Mayor of Jaffna, Viswalingam Manivannan was arrested by Terrorism Investigation Division (TID) at around 2.30am on Friday morning.

Manivannan, who is also an attorney-at-law, was arrested on charges of attempting to resurrect the LTTE and taken to Vavuniya for ‘further investigation’, sources revealed.

The arrest follows an investigation into the uniforms of a Jaffna Municipal Council task force which was launched this week to enforce penalties against environmental infractions such as littering and spitting.

Sri Lankan police alleged that the uniforms worn by the task force were similar to those formerly worn by the LTTE’s police force.

This early morning arrest of a high profile has shocked the Jaffna penisula.
