Sri Lanka military to return jewellery to Tamil civilians

COLOMBO: Sri Lankan military has identified 2,377 “legitimate claimants” to handback a considerable stock of gold and jewellery it seized in the final battle against the LTTE more than five years ago. Rejecting accusations levelled against it by the Tamil diaspora, the Lankan military on Tuesday said it has invited the rightful owners to contact the civil coordinating offices in the former Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) regions to receive their items on verification of ownership. The military said a considerable stock of gold jewellery had been recovered from the Tamil Eelam Banks and Eelam Pawning Centres run by the LTTE.
