Crew of smuggling ship alleged to be tigers

Jan 3, 2011 10:49:53 AM - itnnews.lk

Canadian Federal Officials say that the crew of the MV Sun Sea that arrived off the coast of BC were tigers.

They said four crew members of the vessel which arrived in Canada last August were hard core LTTE cadres. They are being held in segregation at Fraser Regional Correctional Centre where they will be grilled.

A spokesman of the Immigration and Refugee Board said the grilling will take place this month or next month. They are to be questioned as to what links they had with the LTTE, for what purpose they arrived in Canada and whether there are more LTTE cadres among those who arrived in the ship. Earlier information was revealed that there were Tiger cadres who traveled in the Sun Sea vessel.
