Canadian security officials are reported to be using satellites and hi-tech monitoring equipment to locate and pick up signals from the vessel and determine information about the passengers. A ship carrying Tamil refugees and LTTE terrorists reached Canada on 13th August. It was revealed that LTTE leaders were also amongst them. The authorities are still conducting investigations on those who arrived in that ship. The Sri Lankan government has requested the Canadian government not to assist the LTTE terrorists who arrive in Canada in the pretext of refugees.
