The Colombo High Court today fixed for April 19 the case in which to consider whether the case against the LTTE chief arms procurer Kumaran Pathmanathan’s fund raiser be heard in absentia or not.
 
High Court Judge Sunil Rajapaksa made this pronouncement before the High Court regarding the matter in which the suspects Ponniah Ananda Rajah alias Aiya and Subramaniam Sivakumar alias Rajan were indicted for raising funds in the USA, Canada, Malaysia, Norway,  Sri Lanka  and several other Asian  and European countries to financially facilitate the LTTE movement in their activities.
 
Senior State Counsel Riaz Bary submitted that the Attorney General Eva Wanasundera indicted the accused Subramaniam Sivakumar alias Rajan and Ponniah Ananda Rajah alias Aiya who were in charge of the financial property of Kumaran Pathmanathan alias KP.
 
The second accused who facilitated the LTTE movement to raise funds in several European and Asian countries had absconded court and was living in America. He said the court issued a warrant by way of a red notice for the arrest of the second suspect who had absconded court. However up to now   Interpol had not been able to arrest him.
 
The accused had collected funds for LTTE organisations for two-and-a-half years, since 2007 in European and Asian countries. They were suspected to have run several business organisations and manufactured ships and boats for the LTTE and sea tigers with the funds raised by the accused. The first accused is detained in the Terrorist Investigation Division. (T.Farook Thajudeen)
