The Government of India (GoI) has set up a Tribunal for adjudicating ban on Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam(LTTE).
Such a tribunal is constituted under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) to give an opportunity to the banned entity to present its case but is usually a no-how.
Therefore,the central government constituted the ‘Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Tribunal’, consisting of Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal, Hon’ble sitting Judge, High Court of Delhi to examine whether or not there is sufficient cause for declaring Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) as an unlawful association (recently reiterated by MHA).
India had banned the LTTE after the assassination of the former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi in 1991. Since then the ban imposed on the group has been extended after every five years.In early May 2019 the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) issued a notification about extending a ban on LTTE in India for a further period of five years.GoI under the provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA), 1967 declared LTTE as an unlawful association.
