The Government Information Department announced that Government has not granted at any time to hold Maveerar Day events.
There is no truth in propaganda made to mean that the events had been permitted by the Government. This notice was published yesterday, under the signature of Director General of the Government Information Centre, Nalaka Kaluwela.
In an order made in a case filed by the Kopay Police to ban using LTTE flags and emblems in Maveerar Day events to be held in front of the 512 Brigade Head Quarters located on the former Maveerar Thuyillumillam at Kopay, the Court had banned using LTTE flags and emblems but had not banned the event itself.
In this context the Government information Department had made the above announcement.
