Swiss police have arrested ten Tamil activists for money laundering, extortion, and membership of a criminal organisation. The activists allegedly forced other Tamils in Switzerland to donate large sums of money to the LTTE.

The activists allegedly forced other Tamils in Switzerland to donate large sums of money to the LTTE. It is estimated that millions of euros have been raised this way.

Last year, Tamils in the Netherlands and the UK were arrested for the same reason.

According to Swiss authorities, the ring leaders pressured fellow Tamils into requesting large credit loans for which they used fake salary statements.

Last year, similar action was taken in the Netherlands, where eleven Tamils were charged. They are still awaiting trial. In the UK, several Tamils have already been convicted for money laundering and forcing people to pay up. (Source: RNW)

    LTTE is alive and well but thankfully not in Sri Lanka. The Swiss govt should confiscate that money and send it to Sri Lanka to assist nation building.
