Thai authorities say they have arrested a man who they say is a human smuggler linked to the sailing of the MV Sun Sea, the rickety boat that transported 492 Tamil migrants to British Columbia last year.

Thailand’s immigration police arrested Nadesan Jeeyananthan, 48, and seven other people accused of involvement in a human-smuggling ring during a series of raids last Sunday.

A Thai official said Mr. Jeeyananthan was behind a ship that was preparing to sail with 200 Sri Lankans when the voyage was disrupted by police in February. A Canadian official said he is also suspected of helping send the MV Sun Sea to British Columbia, although he was not the main organizer.
The officials said he is alleged to have been behind a major-human smuggling operation that has tried to send migrants to Canada in other ships.

    Probably not! Most extortionists and business minded folk rode on LTTE's misery. While LTTE was causing mayhem in the country, the others with the right names made millions through related business, selling the war.

    Why do we need him here? Please keep him away from SL. Canada now accepts Sri Lanka as a country where the people can go back and live in peace. People like this guy won't be able to sell sri Lanka now but if Canada still accepts refugees sent by him, good for Canada, good for us! win-win.

    THAI GOVERNMENT - PLEASE DEPORT HIM TO SRI LANKA AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE.
    THE MORE YOU KEEP HIM IN YOUR LAND, THE MORE TROUBLE HE AND HIS ASSOCIATES COULD CREATE IN YOUR COUNTRY.
