Madras HC upholds Centre`s ban on LTTE
Chennai: The Madras High Court on Monday upheld the ban imposed by the Centre on the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in 2010.
A Division Bench comprising Justices Elipe Dharma Rao and M Venugopal dismissed writ petitions filed by MDMK founder-leader Vaiko and Prisoners Rights Forum, who challenged the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Tribunal`s order on November 12, 2010.
The Tribunal had confirmed the notification issued by the Home Ministry banning the LTTE on May 14, 2010.
Dismissing the petitions, the bench observed that the petitioners did not have any locus standi to challenge the notification as they were neither office bearers nor members of the LTTE.
So it cannot in any manner be said that they are aggrieved persons, the bench said.
