The Canadian Police have decided to file criminal charges against the owner of the MV Sun Sea vessel.
The ship carrying 492 Sri Lankan Tamil refugees including LTTE suspects reached Canada recently. A majority of the passengers were suspected to have been involved in LTTE terrorist activities. The Canadian Police have decided to file a case against the owner of the vessel for providing passage to the refugees without prior permission. Several refugees in the ship have already been released while the others are being detained for further interrogation.
