A spokesman for the LTTE in Germany has been indicted on terrorism charges, federal justice authorities said Monday in Karlsruhe.

Agilan W., who now holds German citizenship, was arrested in November and indicted Jan 24. Prosecutors said he was spokesman in Germany for the Tamil Coordination Committee, a front for the LTTE, from 2004 to the end of 2009 and oversaw its public relations. Three other leaders of an alleged LTTE front were earlier arrested and indicted.

No date was given for the 35-year-old's trial on a charge of membership in a foreign terrorist organisation and breaching German export laws.
That charge relates to his allegedly purchasing equipment worth 370,000 euros ($500,000) from group funds to outfit LTTE fighters and sent this gear to Sri Lanka.

The European Union declared the LTTE a terrorist group in June 2007. Germany indicted three other activists in the TCC, Vijikanendra V.S., Sasitharan M. and Koneswaran T. in August. (DPA)

    Having realised the attempt to sabotage the SL economy through the withdrawal of GST + was a falier , may be the Germans now want to good with SriLanka to do some serious business.

    Yeah right, the Germans will manipulate their law because they badly need economic support from Sri Lanka. Some people here really live in a dream world.
