The Malaysian police say they had detected the presence of several senior leaders of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) who were reportedly using Malaysia for shelter and logistic base, PTI reported.
According to the report Malaysian Home minister Hishammuddin Hussein has confirmed this adding that that militant groups, both Islamic and non-Islamic, were using Malaysia as their operational base to step up their violent struggle.
He said these groups were also using the southeast Asian country for their financial transactions and exchange of information, besides recruiting people.
"Among those targeted for recruitment are students of local higher learning institutions," the minister told reporters.
State-run news agency Bernama quoted Musa Hassan, the inspector-general of police, as saying that Malaysian police had detected the presence of several senior leaders of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) who were reportedly using Malaysia for shelter and logistic base.
Hishammuddin said the home ministry was working closely with local enforcement and international intelligence agencies to share data on foreign nationals entering Malaysia and their movements, to curb activities that could threaten national and regional security.

Malaysia needs not worry about LTTE Tigers on their soil. They will take the next boat to Australia as Australia is waiting eagerly to embrace fleeing tigers and give them refuge.
