LTTE: Charges against Seremban Jaya rep dropped

SEREMBAN: The Seremban Sessions Court today dropped charges against Seremban Jaya state assemblyman P Gunasekaran for allegedly supporting Liberations Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

Judge Madihah Harullah made the call after accepting the prosecution team’s decision not to pursue the case against Gunasekaran.

The decision on Gunasekaran, who is also the Negeri Sembilan DAP deputy chairman, was read in front of the defendant’s team of lawyers, led by RSN Rayer.

Last month, Gunasekaran, along with about 10 others, were arrested under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012 for allegedly being linked with LTTE.

Speaking to reporters later, Rayer thanked the prosecution team for not pursuing the matter.

“We were informed by the prosecution that they are dropping the charges. However, no reasons were given,” he said.
