A man living in Croydon in the United Kingdom has been charged with smuggling Sri Lankan immigrants into the UK.

ChubramaniamVignarajah, 50, was arrested along with 11 other people as part of coordinated raids by immigration and police officers across London, Luton and Essex on Wednesday.

Vignarajah, of Aurelia Road, Croydon, is charged with conspiring to facilitate illegal immigration.

So far a total of five members of the alleged people smuggling gang, from areas such as Northolt and Hayes, have been charged with the offence.

Six others have been bailed until July pending further investigation.

The Home Office said the arrests had been the culmination of a joint investigation into an alleged criminal network believed to assist Sri Lankan illegal immigrants attempting to reach the UK.

The operation involved Home Office investigators, Kent Police, the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) and Europol, as well as French and German law enforcement agencies.

As police raided address in the UK, seven people were arrested in France. (thisiscroydontoday.co.uk)

    This is Tamil's modus operandi for Tamil expansionism. After that they will call them - Tamil Congress. Will these Tamils ever become humans or grow up?

    This is only one. There may be thousands there. Last time I visited London I came across so many un qualified Sri Lankan Tamils over there doing all sorts of odd jobs.
