The trial of Galleon Group founder and Sri Lankan Tamil-origin billionaire Raj Rajaratnam, who is facing insider-trading charges, has been postponed by a US court till March 8. Mr Rajaratnam faces multiple charges of conspiracy and security fraud and is accused of making illegal profits to the tune of $49 million.
The jury selection was set to begin on February 28 and the court documents did not give any reason for the delay, the New York Post reported.
Of the 26 people originally charged in the case, 19 have already pleaded guilty. (The Hindu)

I had been investing in SL stock market. He pulled his investment in 2008 and 2009. He was manipulating it to assist the LTTE.

As a Srilankan, i am very much proud about Raj Rajaratnam because he has the capacity to determine US stock market.

Common DM, Be proud of this guy as he is only the second "billionaire" Sri Lankan or Sri Lankan origin after the Malaysian who is also happens to be a Sri Lankan Tamil-origin. Instead of commenting on their negative sides.

I have not heard of any evidence that he helped the LTTE. But I know for a fact that he personally helped some Sri Lankan Sinhalese in the USA, based on the fact that they were Sri Lankan.
