13 Rathnasabapathi, Narendran Naren key figure of the LTTE’s foreign procurement arm with diversified businesses in real estate and share-markets. Allegedly involved in many illegal arms procurement deals, Naren has been deported by Singaporean authorities several times.
14 Ratnavale, Roy  –  Vice President, Canadian Tamil Congress. An investment fund manager based in Vancouver. He writes articles espousing the Eelamist cause. Roy Ratnavale has been a spokesman supporting the boat-load of Tamil refugee claimants who arrived in Victoria in November 2009. These refugee claimants are alleged to be ex-LTTE cadre or their associates. Ratnavale’s claims in favour of the illegal would-be immigrants have been refuted by an ex-ambassador of the Canadian government in an article written to the National Post. See also, the article by Rasalingam On 17th Nov 2009, Roy Ratnavale has written to our editors/service-providers and complained that

“It has been brought to my attention recently that the above link contains malicious, slanderous, unsubstantiated information as it relates to my name (see entry “Roy Ratnavale.”) The details relating to my name are incorrect, unfounded and designed to tarnish my reputation; as such libelous in nature and may have serious legal implications to the content provider.”

We have written to Ratnavale asking him to furnish a corrected profile about him, indicating what items are incorrect, so that we can review the material.

We would like to know the answers to the following:

Is he, or is he not, the vice president of of the Canadian Tamil Congress? As far as we are aware, the answer is YES.

Has he, or has he not, written articles supporting the separatist cause of the Tamil Tigers? Look at the Sri Lanka Guardian and we see that the answer is YES.

Has there been no allegations regarding Tamil diaspora funds? The article by Rasalingam a fellow Tamil, already makes such suggestions. Has he taken it up with the Sri Lanka Guardian?

What are the names of the investment management firms and other firms that Ratnavale is involved in?

Is it not in the interest of the public to know these facts?

16 Root Ravi One time head of the LTTE’s “economic development organization” TEEDOR, a front organization for fund raising. He lives in London, and is opposed to KP.
17 Refugees Immigrant claimants The earliest political refugee claimants came after the 1983 “Black-July race riots. However, by then Canada required a visitor’s visa for Sri Lankans and began to tighten immigration. In 1986 August, 155 Tamils arrived on the Newfoundland coast, claiming refugee status. “Cold, hungry and crowded into two lifeboats, men, women and children were spotted through the fog off Newfoundland yesterday and picked up by three Canadian fishing boats. They said they had been adrift for five days, the Canadian Coast Guard reported. Although there was a highly polarized public opinion, Bryan Mulroney decided to accept them without further ado.Australia, Canada, EU countries have been in the news for a longtime. Countries like China have not had such difficulties due to more strict regulations, and because many of these “refugees” are economic refugees, although they claim to be political refugees. People-smuggling operatives work from Sri Lanka, Tamil Nadu, Thailand, Indonesia, south Afria etc. A 2010 report from Chennai is illuminating. Abduction of Shanmugavel in Chennai Alex and the Ozzie media by Michael Roberts

The cost of processing immigrants Toronto immigration lawyers estimate it’ll cost about $22 million in legal fees for refugee hearings and appeals for the claimants. Lawyer Richard Kurland said it’ll cost $50,000 to process each refugee claim and that sum drops to $29,000 a case under new laws. Kurland said about 91% of Sri Lankan refugees are accepted by an immigration and refugee board (IRB) to stay in Canada. “Most of this group will end up living in Canada legally,” he said. “The majority are accepted by the IRB as legitimate refugees.” Public Security Minister Vic Toews has said the government “must ensure that our refugee system is not hijacked by criminals or terrorists.”

It takes over 6 months for the Canadian authorities to process these immigrant batches (~500 people). In contrast, according to Asoka Weerasinghe, a correspondent writing in the Ottawa Citizen, Sri Lankan government was forced to process 300,000 Tamils who flew out of the clutches of the LTTE in April-May 2009 and it took six months to do the job. The efficient, humanitarian handling of the IDPs (internally displace persons) by the Sri lankan government has been documented by UN agencies as well as by independent scholars. Omanthai! Omanthai!
