A key member of the LTTE’s international finance wing has been arrested by Sri Lankan police after he arrived here from Geneva to look into the businesses once owned by the Tamil Tigers.
He was arrested recently from a house at Dehiwela area in Colombo suburbs where he was hiding, state-owned ’Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation’ (SLBC) radio reported today, without identifying him.
The captured Tiger rebel had arrived in the country on January 10 from Geneva in Switzerland, said the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), which made the arrest. All activities of the LTTE in Sri Lanka were dismantled following the killing of Tiger supreme Velupillai Prabhakaran during the war with security forces last year.
The main objective of the suspect’s visit here was to "look into" the businesses that were owned by the LTTE, the SLBC said.
