TRANSNATIONAL GOVERNMENT OF TAMIL EELAM (TGTE) WINS APPEAL TO REMOVE LIBERATION TIGERS OF TAMIL EELAM (THE LTTE) FROM UK TERRORISM LIST

On 21 October, the always-useful EU Sanctions Blog reported that the UK’s Proscribed Organisations Appeal Commission (POAC) had delivered a judgment allowing an appeal against the decision of the Home Secretary to refuse to remove the LTTE from the UK Proscribed Organisation list.  It is said that the appeal was brought on the basis that the LTTE were not “concerned in terrorism” and the continued proscription was unjustified and disproportionate, in particular because of its adverse impact on the Tamil community.

I had omitted the following link (as it did not seem to generate much interest!), but it seemed time to add it again and say that, if you would like to make a (polite) gesture and help me with my removal and computer costs, I have a page at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/KoIvM842y
