Karuna has been sacked by TMVP

Tamil Eelam Makkalai Viduthalai Puligal (TMVP) has decided to suspend Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan alias Karuna Amman from its leadership, party sources said. Party's central committee met yesterday in Batticaloa under the operational leader of TMVP, Pilliyan to endorse the decision claiming that Karuna has made several financial irregualaties of party funds. He is alleged to have misappropriated some Rs.800 million and spent a sum of Rs.5.5 million monthly as his family expenses, according to the internal sources. Karuna Amman who broke the LTTE in early 2004 re- formed the TMVP party with the help of military and a section of the government. No immediate reaction was reported from Karuna Amman on the latest development in his party, as he is not in the country. it's also not clear whether the LTTE played any role behind the curtain in this latest unprecedented move.

Karuna left the country 2 weeks ago and is now in Scotland according to reliable sources.
Intelligence officials, who worked closely with both Karuna and Pilliyan were also tight lipped about the latest twist. Karuna had internal problem with his second in command Pilliyan early this year, but managed to patch up due to influences by influential figures closed to both parties.

Karuna should be well-commended for his enlightenment and leaving LTTE for the good of his own people.

LTTE destroyed the future of many Sri Lankans for 30 years.

Karuna mentioned that he wants to leave arms and provide opportunities of people who were battered under LTTE.

This is great maturity, and an enlightenment. Karuna should be protected and respected for that quality.

Thanks to Karuna, there are no more Easterners in the LTTE ranks(to most part) as Suicide bombers...

Karuna's exit from the LTTE open all the close doors for the SLA, to
a virtual destruction of the LTTE....

Thank you Karuna, the former Commander of the Eastern Alliance..

What is the truth that Pillayan has LTTE connection, I mean some understanding with LTTE with respect to where they are heading.

Pillaian is in no way associated with LTTE now. LTTE will assassinate him the first chance they get.
