No escape for Prabha

Despite claims that LTTE Leader Velupillai Prabhakaran might attempt to use a submarine to escape from the country, the Sri Lanka Navy yesterday claimed that the Tigers did not possess any Submarine capable of ferrying anyone including the Tamil Tiger Leader to another location by sea.

“I can assure that the LTTE does not possess that kind of submarine which can be used by anyone to travel safely,” Eastern Navy Commander Susith Weerasekera told the Daily Mirror yesterday.

The Commander of the Eastern Naval Command, which is responsible for the seas in the Mullaitivu security also challenged the LTTE leadership to escape through its defence lines in the Mullaitivu seas.

“If he (Prabhakaran) can escape from the country through the sea, we are ready to face it, that would be the final journey for him,” Rear Admiral Weerasekera said.
