Canada urged to reject the terrorists in the vessel

Aug 15, 2010 5:04:54 AM - itnnews.lk

The High Commissioner for Sri Lanka in Canada has said that the Canadian Government should totally reject the LTTE terrorists who had arrived in a vessel posing as refugees.

The Thai flagged MV Sun Sea ship has already reached Canada with 490 persons. Media reported that a majority of them are LTTE cadres. Chithrangani Vageeshwara said that under such circumstances, the Canadian Government should not accept but reject them. It has been revealed that the Captain of the vessel Vinod is also an LTTE cadre. There are reports that he had been supplying weapons to the tigers for some time.

The Sri Lankan High Commisioner pointed out that if Canada granted relief to the vessel, it would amount to granting facilities for the terrorists to re-organise themselves in its soil. In the meantime the Canadian Public Security Minister has underlined that he is not ready to safeguard criminals or terrorists through the programme of granting facilities to refugees.
