It is revealed that there had been human smugglers within the MV Sun Sea vessel.
Information has been unearthed that there had been 12 large scale human smugglers among the Sri Lanka Tamil migrants who reached Canada in August last year. The Canadian Immigration and Refugee Board said that new technology had been used for smuggling. The Board said that these details had surfaced when a Lankan Tamil migrant, who had worked in the vessel, was grilled over his role in the human smuggling operation.
Pointing out that a person accused of human smuggling who had already been deported was the mastermind of the Sun Sea operation, the Immigration and the Refugee Board pointed out that action would be instituted to deport the 12 suspects if they are found guilty of the related charges. Already 40 passengers of the vessel had been uncovered as tigers. Investigations with regard to them are still in progress.
