Police media spokesman SSP Ajith Rohana has confirmed to media that a Red Notice has been issued for the arrest of Nediyavan. The arrest warrant has been entered into the Interpol database and appears on the Interpol web site.

Sri Lanka police earlier this month obtained Interpol Red Notices on 40 suspected LTTE operatives active in foreign countries.

Two of the Red Notices were for Nediyavan who is believed to be in Oslo and Vinayagam, who is living in France.

Investigations have revealed that the three LTTE operatives, who were recently killed in a clash with the army in the North, were functioning under the instructions of Nediyavan and Vinayagam who were preparing the ground for another armed struggle.

The government on April 01 banned the LTTE and 15 other Tamil diaspora groups and some 430 individuals alleged of having terror links and involved in reviving the terrorist movement in the country.
