The government has started a comprehensive investigation to ascertain whether arms and ammunition recovered from the LTTE were provided to the Ukrainian Guerrillas and the Islamic terrorist organisation Boko Haram in Nigeria, Cabinet spokesman and Health Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne said.

He said the previous government has provided arms to a security institution which was allegedly involved in arms deals with a number of countries including Nigeria.

The minister said the government has received reports that this organisation had exchanged arms in mid sea.

“However, the Defence Secretary has confirmed that these arms and ammunition do not belong to the government. They must be arms and ammunition recovered from the LTTE during the last stage of war,” he said.

Dr. Senaratne added that government forces found a haul of weapons and ammunition and consignment of gold in various places in the North during the last few days of war. “The government does not have a complete report about the weapons found from the LTTE during the last few day of war on terrorism,” the minister said. He was speaking at the weekly Cabinet press briefing at the Information Department yesterday.

Minister Senaratne added that the former first family had a very close association with this security institution.

He said that former Sri Lankan Ambassador to Moscow Udayanga Weeratunga who was charged with providing arms to Ukrainian guerrillas has gone missing and the Ukraine government has asked the government to conduct a full scale investigation against Weeratunga.
