Seven LTTE suspects were arrested by the authorities in the Netherlands, the Sri Lankan Ambassador in Netherlands, Grace Asirvathan, confirmed to BBC Sandeshaya. The arrest was made after an intensive study of the LTTE banned activities in the Netherlands, the National Criminal office said.

It said sixteen residences and businesses searched in the operation. Computers, paperwork, phones, documents, photos, DVDs and a sum totaling more than 40,000 euros were seized.

"Among the suspects are the leaders of various organizations of Tamils in the Netherlands, which probably play a role in the international network of the LTTE," the justice ministry said in a statement.

Leaders of the Tamil Coordinating Committee (TCC), the Tamil Rehabilitation Organisation (TRO), the Tamil Youth Organisation (TYO), the Tamil Women Organisation (TVO) and the Tamil Arts and Cultural Organization Netherlands (TKCO), are believed to be among the suspects. (BBC Sandeshaya)

    These fanatics actually ruining the name of decent peaceloving Tamils. LTTE is destroyed, idea of a separate Homeland is nothing but a bad dream. They all know that. Now they are infighting to control money for their own gains.
    Most of them cannot speak English, no skills, doing menial jobs living on state handouts. These front organisations are formed to deceive their own people to hand over money,
    believing they are for a legitimate cause.

    Well done. These bogus Tiger fronts should be dismantled.
    Although there is no hint of a chance of LTTE revival in Sri Lanka, they are feathering their own nests like in Australia,UK,Canada, India etc. on the pretext of a mythical homeland. Malaysia recently deported several tamils back to Sri Lanka as they were spreading tamil sentiments.
