Mastermind in smuggling case nabbed

E-mail Print
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) have arrested a man charged over the smuggling of 492 Tamil migrants into Canada. RCMP says they arrested Nadarajah Mahendran at Toronto's Pearson International Airport without incident and aboard a flight originating in Sri Lanka.

Mahendran is one of six men charged over the August 2010 arrival of the MV Sun Sea in British Columbia.
Police in Thailand, Australia, France and Norway have all helped with the investigation.

Public Safety Canada says five men have now been arrested, and four of the men are in custody in Canada.

The department says one man is facing extradition from France, and a warrant is still out for the sixth man. (Winnipeg Free Press)

These are the very guys Canada and other countries accepted with open arms while blaming SL for harassing and forcing them to leave. Al least now they must realize they are being exploited and clamp down on the criminals they defended and supported for so long.

Please don't send him back to SL. You wanted them so you can keep them.

Now they are leaning a bit late about the Tamil immigrants . Canada do not send them back, we do not need them here.
