The Canadian Government is mulling over the confiscation of all LTTE assets in Canada.
Minister Prof. G.L. Peiris has said that Canada was already in the process of crafting the necessary legislation. The Minister said that Jason Kenny, a Canadian Minister had taken the lead in this respect. Measures are already in place to ban LTTE banking activities and fund raising. Canadian defence authorities are taking the necessary initiative to prevent LTTE cadres from entering Canada. It has been revealed that there were LTTE leaders among the Sri Lankan Tamils who recently entered Canada. As such the Canadian Defence authorities are exercising caution. Giving his views at the Editors meeting at Temple Trees today, Minister Prof. G.L. Peiris said that the two countries are holding bilateral discussions on the confiscation of LTTE assets and activities in Canada.
