The Canadian Federal Court ordered to forfeit all assets belonging to World Tamil Movement of Ontario and the World Tamil Movement of Quebec to the Federal Government.
The Federal Court ruled the property was owned or controlled by a terrorist organization, and therefore had to be forfeited, the National Post reported.
The decision marks the official end of the WTM, which was formed in 1986 and became closely aligned with the LTTE.
It also marks the conclusion of a nine-year Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) investigation.
