Former Parliamentarian MK Sivajilingam and another suspect, arrested for violating a Court order issued by the Jaffna Magistrate’s Court, banning the commemoration of the death anniversary of deceased former LTTE member Thileepan, will be produced before the Jaffna Magistrate’s Court.

The duo was arrested last evening by Police in Kopay.

Police said the suspects were arrested for displaying a banner inciting disharmony between ethnicities and for lighting lamps to mark the death anniversary of Thileepan.

Thileepan was the LTTE’s political leader in the Jaffna peninsula.
