A perfect srategist who undertook operations against the Sri Lankan Army methodically, Velupillai Prabhakaran provided Tamil translations on English language books on war strategy to his cadres to take on the government forces.

English books on war strategy with Tamil translations and maps showing LTTE sea routes and several personal documents of Prabhakaran, including bank account deatils, were some of the articles recovered from Wanni with the help of the slain LTTE chief’s personal assistant and body guard.

The Tamil translations were provided to the LTTE cadres during the war against the Sri Lankan Army.

Files with more than 270 personal documents belonging to Prabhakaran in three large plastic containers were recovered from Vellamullivaikkal, the final ‘no fire zone´ in the 30-year-old civil war, in Mullaittivu.

Deputy Inspector General of Police Anura Senanayaka said the articles were recovered at the end of a six-day search operation conducted by a police team in the former LTTE-held areas.

The documents also relate to the purchase of weapons and countries of origin, weapon transport schedules, military plans of the outfit, bank account details and details of military personnel, the Sunday Nation newspaper reported.
