Preventing Post-LTTE Violence in Sri Lanka

The Sri Lankan government offered a comprehensive and far-reaching reforms package after the defeat of the two Marxist Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna insurgencies by the security forces. The state should therefore offer the same package in a continuation of its policy after the defeat of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam to prevent political violence.

— Rohana Wijeweera, Leader of the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP)
