The United States said that LTTE’s financial network of support continued to operate throughout 2012, and there were multiple reports of increased LTTE involvement in human smuggling out of refugee camps.

“The LTTE used its international contacts and the large Tamil diaspora in North America, Europe, and Asia to procure weapons, communications, funding, and other needed supplies. The group employed charities as fronts to collect and divert funds for their activities,” the US Country Reports on Terrorism 2012 released by the US State Department said.

It also said, counterterrorism cooperation and training with the United States in 2012 was limited, however, due to statutory and policy restrictions based on concerns about alleged past human rights abuses committed by Sri Lankan security forces.

    I am sure the government forces could not OR prevented by outside force to completely root out the terrorism. Will our young ones prepare for a much tougher war in the future?
