The Madras High Court on1 July 2013 upheld the ban imposed by the Union government of India 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 12 November 2010.

The Tribunal had confirmed the notification issued by the Home Ministry banning the LTTE on 14 May 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.
