ANOTHER SUN SEA ASYLUM SEEKER DEPORTED

Aug 3, 2011 7:35:58 AM - itnnews.lk

A Tamil asylum seeker who arrived in Canada aboard the MV Sun Sea last year has been ordered deported on allegations he committed a war crime in Sri Lanka.

The man, who is being housed in a Maple Ridge men’s prison, admitted he was a member of the LTTE, a banned terrorist outfit in Canada.
In a heavily edited decision released by the Immigration and Refugee Protection Board, the man was accused of counselling other Tamil Tigers to commit a war crime.
The man was one of 492 people who travelled to Canada aboard the MV Sun Sea.
