On 7 December 2018, members of the TGTE made an application to the Home Secretary for the LTTE to be removed from the list of organisations proscribed under the Terrorism Act 2000. The Application was refused on 8 March 2019.

The TGTE appealed that decision, and, on 21 October 2020, the Proscribed Organisations Appeal Commission found that the Home Secretary’s assessment of the LTTE lacked in reasoning, prompting a reconsideration by the Home Secretary.

Regrettably, the Home Secretary maintained their decision, which is the subject of the appeal.

PILC has instructed Peter Haynes KC (St Philips chambers), and Shanthi Sivakumaran (Doughty Street chambers).
