Sri Lankan authorities today detained a Canada-bound container with a cargo of propaganda material for the island's Tamil Tiger rebels, a police official said.

Police were asked to investigate the consignment of promotional material for the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), on its way to Canada from the south Indian port of Chennai via Sri Lankan capital Colombo.

"There were 45 cartons of LTTE books to an address in Canada," said the police official, who asked not to be named.

The Tamil Tigers were militarily defeated by Sri Lankan security forces two years ago, ending 37 years of ethnic bloodshed. The Tigers remain a proscribed organisation in Sri Lanka as well as in neighbouring India and in Canada.

But the Tigers have a strong support base in south India as well as in several Western cities and have pledged to keep up their campaign for an independent homeland for the island's ethnic Tamil minority. (AFP)

    Probably Tamil language meant for LTTE supporters. Illangayan still there are people in S.L.who can read Tamil Books.

    Justin Tuesday, 17 May 2011 04:30 PM

    I agree. Now the Govt. needs some excuse to give the UN
    for extending the Emergency. How long can they do this?

    illangayan Tuesday, 17 May 2011 08:32 AM

    Are they Tamil books or LTTE books? Do not get confused.

    eagle eye Tuesday, 17 May 2011 08:38 AM

    Indian shippers stop using colombo transhipment point.

    maangan Tuesday, 17 May 2011 08:41 AM

    maangan Tuesday, 17 May 2011 08:46 AM

    Consultant Tuesday, 17 May 2011 08:30 AM

    Dude, it's clearly mentioned LTTE Books. no need to investigates on Tamil books since there are so many Tamil books and news papers in SL.

    Anushka Tuesday, 17 May 2011 08:51 AM

    Are you stupid? Tamil people don't need propaganda

    raju Tuesday, 17 May 2011 08:58 AM

    Rubbish, good thing that the govt did not say there are arms in that container, it is totaly inside game of the srilankan govt to divert the anti srilankan feelings in tamilnadu.

    nagu Tuesday, 17 May 2011 08:55 AM

    Cant you understand English? Thos e books are LTTE Propaganda books...

    nagulendran Tuesday, 17 May 2011 09:00 AM

    You mean the Big Lie....

    Shiromi Tuesday, 17 May 2011 09:07 AM

    Well Done Police. No way to have separete home land inside our small country. Please live together peacefully under one country.

    N K Ratnam Tuesday, 17 May 2011 08:24 PM

    Here we go again. Surely it must be that time of the month when the parliament discusses extending the state of emergency.

    Rasheed Tuesday, 17 May 2011 09:09 AM

    Typical LTTE dispora thinking....Good luck Canada (You need it)

    ridd3000 Tuesday, 17 May 2011 08:57 AM

    I think you are confused :)

    ridd3000 Tuesday, 17 May 2011 08:58 AM

    No No not the tamil people just the LTTE people

    ridd3000 Tuesday, 17 May 2011 09:15 AM

    Namal Tuesday, 17 May 2011 10:04 AM

    Another government gimmicks to divert the 'war crime accusations'''

    Kalu Sudda Tuesday, 17 May 2011 09:52 AM

    Lets have the address in Canada with the postal code.

    SureshP Tuesday, 17 May 2011 10:00 AM

    Isn't it funny that pro LTTE (in other words anti Sri Lanka) material from Chennai is sent through Colombo and not any other port in th world??

    dakuna Tuesday, 17 May 2011 10:07 AM

    Colombo port transshipment business is here to stay no matter what , as its' geographical location is as lucky as Sriiii Lanka. ! ho hooo!!

    dev Tuesday, 17 May 2011 10:38 AM

    then give us the polital solution. then things will be all right. its nothing to do with sinhalese. sinhalese and tamils can live to gether no doubt. but issue is with govt constitution.

    Konde Bendapuchhena Tuesday, 17 May 2011 10:44 AM

    War Crime,War crime,war crime like a mantra to Diaspora what about Crime and terror done by LTTE no one even remember that

    Nissanka Tuesday, 17 May 2011 10:49 AM

    Already is.

    Gayan Tuesday, 17 May 2011 10:52 AM

    Nothing to divert- war criminals are all dead.

    Rajitha Wednesday, 18 May 2011 02:13 AM

    Please always want to confuse any issue with the "Tamil Issue" the moment the LTTE is implicated.
    Why ? ?

    mohan Wednesday, 18 May 2011 02:38 AM

    why port authority open transshipment ? did they know what inside. or pre-plan drama ?

    Heamu Tuesday, 17 May 2011 11:42 AM

    He is madly confused about English. The article does not say it is Tamil propaganda. Do not drag Tamils to LTTE wagon. If you wish please remain in LTTE wagon . We do not care

    Heamu Tuesday, 17 May 2011 11:44 AM

    Crimes and war crimes of LTTE

    Heamu Tuesday, 17 May 2011 11:46 AM

    Hoo hoo LTTE

    Heamu Tuesday, 17 May 2011 11:47 AM

    yes some rascals understand this truth.

    DeSouza Tuesday, 17 May 2011 11:33 AM

    another vote for extending emegency coming up soon?

    Heamu Tuesday, 17 May 2011 11:49 AM

    LTTE supporters have no backbone to do that

    Heamu Tuesday, 17 May 2011 11:55 AM

    No gimmicks by the government. War crimes of LTTE should be on LTTE sympathizers.

    Adaran Tuesday, 17 May 2011 01:42 PM

    Political solution was given two years ago. Lets celebrate its second anniversary this week together.

    pilliyan Tuesday, 17 May 2011 01:47 PM

    Oyage sudu kella Wednesday, 18 May 2011 05:07 AM
