On some occasions, the government would subsequently publish a proscription decree purporting that the closure was done pursuant to the provisions of the decree.
Forced closure of a press facility or the proscription of a newspaper or magazine undoubtedly constitutes a prior restraint on the exercise of the right to free speech as well as post publication censorship, both of which are generally prohibited by international human rights instruments.
Since every Proscription Decree usually suspends the guarantees provided by the constitution and ousts the jurisdiction of the courts to inquire into their validity or the validity of any action undertaken in pursuance of their provisions, the courts have invariably declined jurisdiction over any suit challenging the proscription of any publication.

'Proscription' is not like a tap that can be turned 'on' and 'off' according to one's whims and fancies.
Thus, an expressed willingness [whether genuine or not] to enter into meaningful 'Talks' or even genuinely entering into such 'Talks' is not, and cannot be, a reason for de-proscription or the conferment of legitimacy upon the LTTE, so long as the reasons for its proscription remain.
The LTTE's objective to rob the country of a part of her sovereign territory and establish a separate state therein remains unchanged and constitutes the basis and/or essential reason for the existence of that criminal organization.
