He is said to be active with the TCHRRam Selvarajah calims that “Suresh mobilized Tamils against the human rights violations in Sri Lanka. Just before the arrest, Suresh organized a large demonstration in Toronto. Close to 25,000 (said to be a vast exaggeration!) people took part in it and it was one of the largest political demonstrations in Canada. This made him a target of Sri Lankan government,” he said. Ram dismissed the argument that Suresh is a potential threat to Canada. “Suresh lived in Canada for more than four years and he had never committed any crime.”Ram Selvaraja worked closely with Velluppillai Thangavelu of FACT, alleged to be an LTTE front organization in the mid 1990s. However, it should be noted that the LTTE was NOT a baane dorganization until the advent of the Harper Government.

24 Siva Sangary Early (1973) associate of Prabhakaran, KPathmanathan and Anton balasingham. He was largely responsible for building up the LTTE air wing (Tamileelam Air Force)”. He studied in the Vanni, then in Chennai (India) and worked in Montreal, Canada before he returned to SL in the early 1980s. He was involved in the LTTE kidnapping of the rival Tamil group (PLOTE) commander Kannan in Chennai, 1985, as well as other violent inter-tamil eleminination acts. He was 52 years old when he was killed by a Claymore mine near Oddusuddan in Sept 2001. The LTTE media issued the statement that: “The overall deputy commander of the LTTE’s military division Col. Balraj has been given special powers by the supreme commander to take all measures necessary to eradicate the selective assassination campaign conducted against its high-ranking leaders allegedly by a “deep penetration commando unit of the Sri Lankan army”. This long range deep penetration unit (LRDP), dreaded by the LTTE, was secretly exposed by the Ranil Wickremasinghe regime allegedly to satisfy an agreement between Wickremasinghe, the LTTE and the Norwegiens, in the context of the CFA. The commandos of the LRDP were subsequently assasinated by the LTTE once their identities were revealed. Apart from Shankar, other senior leaders like Gangai Amaran, deputy chief of the sea tigers, Nizam, LTTE-political head of Batticaloa – Amparai, and Mano, communications chief of the eastern Tigers, have been killed in similar claymore operations of the LRDP. see LRDPMy name is Siva Sangary BS, P.Eng. I am a middle aged Tamil American who graduated from A & M University in Texas in 1986 and currently working as IT/Networking Engineer. I am married and have two young daughters. I am very much disturbed about the way the racist government of Sri Lanka and their massive military juntas perpetrates so much human right violation on Tamil minorities since 1950s and would like work tirelessly to bring the problems faced by our brethren back home to the international arena to seek remedy. I am an ardent supporter for creation of a separate State for Tamils which is our traditional home land for thousands of years.

27 Dr. Sathananthan, S Sachithanandam Sathananthan, married to Sahiba Sumar Dr Sathananthan was a Founder-Secretary of the Action Group of Tamils in Colombo (AGOTIC), 1993, which disbanded when Kumar Ponnambalam was assasinated in 2000. He was Assistant Director at the Marga Institute, Colombo where he was a coordinator of research on South Asian regional cooperation conducted by the Committee for Studies on Cooperation in Development in South Asia (CSCD). Sathanantha was Chairman of Mandru (Institute for Alternative Development and Regional Cooperation) which he co-founded in 1989. He commissioned/produced a film entitled ‘Suicide Warriors’ (1996), a half-hour long video seemingly supportive of the suicide-women cadre of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in Sri Lanka. This film was broadcast by Channel Four Television, London. He has worked with ZDF, German Television film production group and Channel-4 in UK, and in India and PakistanIn September 2004 he stated that: “The LTTE-led Tamil national movement has the unwavering support of the vast majority of Tamils. To crush the LTTE they have to first defeat the Tamil people. That is impossible.” he also attacked the moderates accussing them of treachery:In Sri Lanka, Tamil quislings of the Tamil United Liberation Front (TULF) and of other assorted Colombo-based Tamil parties are engaged in their customary treachery. They keep calling for “talks”; but they have deliberately kept quiet about the trap the international community has set for the LTTE in the Tokyo Declaration. They are desperately hoping that the Sinhala State would co-operate with the international community and entice the LTTE into “talks.” The Tamil quislings are greedily awaiting the day when the Sinhala State would disarm the LTTE through “talks,” or by other means, and pave the way for them to continue to betray the LTTE-led Tamil national movement without fear of retribution.Tamil net feature on Sathananthan After the fall of the LTTE, he has written many articles from the Eelamist point of view, but beating a very different tune:Sathanathan on the Fall of Prabhakaran

30 Ranjan Selva TGTE southern rep. he gives his bio in 2010 as: “I am an entrepreneur having built and run several businesses over the last 30 years in the state of Texas. I live in the Dallas-Forth Worth metroplex with my wife and two children. I have always been involved in “our freedom struggle” going back 25 years when I helped establish a Thamil Sangam in the DFW metroplex along with my dear friend Rudra while he was a graduate student at SMU. Over the years I have helped many of our young Tamil men and women establish their life here in the US. While many escaped persecution back home and struggled to make a new life here in the US I have helped them with jobs, education and other basic needs. I have tirelessly campaigned over the years taking our cause to many public servants and representatives at both the local and national levels. In a time when the world is shying away from supporting the legitimate freedom struggle of our people I think it is more critical now than ever before to come together and rally around this democratic and transparent process of the Trans National Government of Tamil Ealam. In the coming months I expect to work hard with my colleagues and many subject matter experts to bring forth our struggle for justice, freedom and ultimately nationhood to the world.”
31 Shalk, Peter German Theologian, Tamil scholar and Academic now working in Upsala, Sweden. He has been a strong admirer (?) of Prabhakaran, seemingly going to the extent of extolling the Blood and suicide culture of the LTTE. He was consistently supported by “Tamil studies conferences” financed largely by Eelamist supporters, and this was partially responsible for moving him into the midstream of LTTE ideology. Sebastian Rasalingam, a strong Tamil dissident had taken issue with Peter Shalk’s “sanguinary” writings. See Tamil Nationalism becomes the ethno-suicide of Sri Lankan Tamils
32 Shanmugarajaha,Satrubarajah Ruby Caught in Credit card fraud in Norway, 2008 together with Sureswaran Thuraisingham, Kajamugan Parameswaran, Selvakumar Yoganathan, Theepakanth Aiyathurai and Sriranjan Sivananeswaran. See also M. Pathmathas (Thailand), Balakumar Poluthurai (south Africa)

The LTTE had allegedly given him millions of rupees robbed from a government bank at Neerveli, for safe keeping. Sinnarasa subsequently married, allegedly from a family deeply involved with the LTTE and worked full time for the group. Sources allege that Sinnarasa, considered by the Canadian Diaspora as a “God father” of the Canadian LTTE, was attached to the Tamil Eelam Society of Canada, which received financial assistance from the Canadian Government, through the Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration. Sinnarasa, while promoting the LTTE has been providing re-settlement services to those arriving in Canada, seeking refugee status.

39 Gobi Sivanathan A businessman from Hayes, west London and Eelamist activist. His group does not admit the role played by the LTTE in forcing Tamils into human shields in fighting the Sri Lankan army. Sivanthan and others (e.g., Surin Surendiran of the “British Tamils) take the position that the SL govt. deliberately targeted civilians. A number of human-rights advocacy groups have also been influenced by similar lines of thinking (e.g., the prominent Sri Lanka Campaign for Peace and Justice). Sivantha has launched a protest march from London to Geneva. In February 2009 another British-based Tamil burned himself to death outside the UN complex claiming to draw attention to the battles in Sri Lanka.

43 Sivakumaran P. Ponnudurai Sivakumaran,   “Eelam’s Bhagat Singh” He was a high-school drop out who became an early militant, even before the formation of the LTTE. When caught at a bank robbery in 1984, he killed himself with cyanide to prevent capture by the police. This was the inspiration that gave Prabhakaran the idea of “kuppi” for his future suicide cadre. S. J. V. Chelvanayagam and other members of the TULF had been grooming Sivakumaran as a leader of the “boys”, as far back as 1975. See Article by Michael Roberts
44 Sivaram, Dharmeratnam Taraki Prabhakaran named Sivaram as a Mamanithar (Maha-manthree). see Sivaram eulogyDaily Mirror columnist and a founding Editor of the Tamilnet from 1998. He was originally a member of People’s Liberation Organization of Tamil Eelam (PLOTE), which was formed following a split from the LTTE. He remained with PLOTE until 1990, when he took to journalism and became well known as Taraki and wrote LTTE articles. He was an original supporter of Uma Maheswaran. He also attempted to disagree with the LTTE and also uncompromisingly attacked Karuna of the TMVP. He was a native of Batticaloa. He was found killed in April 2008.He was introduced in 1982 to young American anthropologists like Mark Whitaker (Drew University, South Carolina) Dennis McGilvray (Colorado University), and Patricia Lawrance (by the Eelamist Father Harry Miller, an American Jesuit missionary from New Orleans who had lived in Sri Lanka since September 1948). Miller was a teacher and rector at St Michael’s College, Madakalapuwa (Batticaloa). The nature of Sivaram’s links with American anthropologists, and the nature of their their links with the US information gathering services have been raised by concerned intellegance experts. Margaret Trawick from the Massey University of New Zealand was another associate of the Sivaram group. Sivaram was believed to be the the columnist “Taraki” with a “5th columnist” edge. The New York-based CIA front “The Committee to Protect Journalists” (CPJ) wrote to President Chandrika Kumarantunga, “condemning such accusations”. The CPJ complained that the accusations were without any “substantive evidence”, tarnishing and endangering Sivaram and his family. Ironically, Sivram probably became a victim of inter-Tamil rivalries in the East rather than those insinuated by the CPJ.

55 Sri Lanka Campaign for Peace and Justice SLCPJ This is an advocay group which maintains a blog on Sl human-rights issues and has also pushed for a UN-panel investigation on Sri Lanka. It gives the impression that 40,000 civilians were crassely killed by the Government just prior to the demise of the LTTE leaders. see: This is a topic which has also been discussed in a different setting by Dr Michael Roberts, Dr. Kumar David and Lional Bopage in the e-discussion stream Groundviews. The webpages show barbed-wire internment camps, giving the impression that such camps continue to exist in Sri Lanka.

57 Sri Kantha, Sachi C. P. Goliard He belongs to the older generation of English-educated versatile Tamils who became radicalized in the 1970s and unabashedly began to support the violent path. He is a biochemist based in Tokyo and writes to “The Tamil Nation” and other LTTE publications. He claims to be from “Paruthu Thurai” of Tamil Eelam. Patuthu thurai” is “Pulun doova”. See place.names   In 2009 He gives the following reasons beside advances in military technology, for the failure of the LTTE:”The reasons for LTTE’s military debacle include a natural cause (big tsunami of Dec. 2004), and four human causes (trust-busting betrayal by Karuna, tripe propaganda of Tamil traitors, terrible norms set by the “Little” Bush administration officials (e.g., Ambassador Blake) and the antagonism of IBMs (i.e., Indian Brahamin Mafia). The Tamil “Traitors” listed by SriKantha are as follows: ” A list of these traitors include, Lakshman Kadirgamar, the Hoole brothers, Rohini Hensman, Rajani Thiranagama and D.B.S. Jeyaraj. The themes of tripe propaganda included child warriors, human right violations and militarization of the Tamil society. For survival reasons, the same Tamil traitors turned a blind eye to the deeds of the Sri Lankan government. The worst culprit in this category was Lakshman Kadirgamar”.see “Traitor” Tragedy It seems to us that the “Tamilnation” intellectuals condoned the assassination of “Traitors” like Neelan Thiruchelvam and later, Kadirgamar, and presumably, the political killings that started with the removal of Duraiappah. Dr. Hoole suggests that SriKantha already had prior knowledge on the intended attack on the Gothabaya Rajapakse, the Defense Secretary. Messenger of Death
