Coordinator of the Constitutional Affairs Committee, set up to find peace in Sri Lanka during its civil war, says Ramasamy was merely a member of the panel, whose expenses were borne by the Norwegian government.

GEORGE TOWN: A peace negotiator and former member of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) today asserted that Deputy Chief Minister II Prof P Ramasamy was not associated with the group.

This was contained in an email sent to Ramasamy by Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran, who is now practising law in New York.

Visuvanathan, in the email, said that the deputy chief minister was one of the members of a Constitutional Affairs Committee set up during the peace process to explore the modalities for peaceful resolution of the conflict in Sri Lanka.

He stated that in 2002, a peace process was initiated between the LTTE and the Sri Lankan government, under the auspices of the Norwegian government, the United States, the United Kingdom and Japan.
