An LTTE member, who was arrested in Germany over the assassination of Foreign Minister Lakshman Kadirgamar in 2005, had been charged by the German prosecutors over the murder, foreign news agencies reported yesterday. German prosecutors said yesterday that they filed the indictment against the 40-year-old G. Navanithan who was arrested in January. The suspect had also been charged with membership of a foreign terrorist organisation. The indictment had been filed in a Stuttgart Court earlier this month. The prosecutors said that the suspect belonged to the intelligence unit of the LTTE from 2002 to 2009 and provided information that was used to carry out the killing of Sri Lanka’s Foreign Minister Kadirgamar in 2005. They also said that the suspect had helped LTTE stalwarts flee Sri Lanka in the final phase of the war.
