TIGER TERRORISTS ON TRIAL IN THE HAGUE

Sep 16, 2011 6:05:23 AM - itnnews.lk

Some tiger terrorist activists went on trial in a Dutch Court yesterday.

The Government of the Netherlands had filed a case against five Sri Lankan Tamils in the Hague Courts, accused of illegally funding the LTTE. Prosecutors accuse the men — all Tamils who live in the Netherlands — of illegally funding the group, which has been branded a terrorist group by the European Union, and holding membership of an international terror outfit. Prosecutors and defense attorneys are expected to lay out their cases later this month and a verdict is likely toward the end of next month.
