Blow to LTTE fundraising overseas

The Federal Court of Canada has ruled that the World Tamil Movement of Ontario and the World Tamil Movement of Quebec should forfeit all their belongings to the Canadian Government.

In a move seen as a huge blow to LTTE activities in Canada, the Court ruled WTM property was “owned or controlled by a terrorist organisation” and therefore had to be forfeited, Canadian media reported.
