Charles Santiago says by removing the Tamil Tigers from the list of terror organisations, the 12 suspects held for alleged support of the defunct group can go free. – The Malaysian Insight file pic, January 29, 2020.

THE government should remove the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam from its list of terrorist organisations because it is no longer a threat, even in Sri Lanka, said Charles Santiago.

This will also enable the authorities to release the 12 men who are detained on suspicion of links to or support of the group, said the Klang MP.
