Westminster Magistrate Court has ordered the officers to freeze all bank accounts of A.C. Shanthan- President of the British Tamil Association which is a Pro- LTTE organization and his wife yesterday. The court also rejected the appeal which sought bail for the suspect.

The Metropolitan Police conducting a special operation to counter terrorism command arrested Shanthan under Section 12 (3) of the UK Terrorism Act which ith prohibits `support for a terrorist organisation.` Last month.

Britain`s Anti- Terrorism Unit had filed 28 charges against Shanthan including extortion, operation of business enterprises, printing press and oil storages with ill-gotten wealth.

The police investigations have clarified that all involved in these enterprises are LTTE members and up to now they have earned a sum of about 4 billion sterling pounds to fund the terror movement here. The money thus earned had been utilised to purchase weapons to attack the Lankan Navy from China and Israel and other outfits.

Court was lenient on Shanthan`s wife and permitted her to withdraw funds only for urgent reasons with the permission of the Police and to produce receipts of all such purchases to the Anti- Terrorism Unit for scrutiny.

Meanwhile, Lambert who was arrested along with Shanthan is under house arrest. Lambert was arrested on charges of kidnapping for ransom and extortion.

Arunachalam Chrishanthakumar, also known as A.C. Shanthan, 50, of Upwood Road, Norbury, and 29-year-old Goldan Lambert, of Bramley Hill, south Croydon, are accused of giving support to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

These two suspects were the leading participants at rally held at Hyde Park last July at which cutouts of LTTE leader Velupillai Prabhakaran were displayed on the stage and flags with the LTTE emblem were flown.

Sinhala Terrorist goons need to improve their statistics analytical skills......another Keheliya Rampuk crap news item or lankaweb.com Walter Jayawardena's dream news........Pathetic aney

http://news.lk/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=2823&Itemid=44


Now Mahinda can borrow some money from VP to pay GOSL staff salaries...some of them have not been paid salaries for the past few months as per Dr Harsha de silva...Lankan top economist


Lankan Tamils should not get excited with Sinhala Terrorist statistics....Sinhala Media clowns of colombo need to know how to count numbers.....Normaly most of the hela modayas are Zero '0' in mathematics and not compatible in mathematics with lankan tamils......which was one of the main cause of VP forming LTTE.....discrimination for Tamils in university admission in Sri Lanka......tamils in jaffna need to get 100 marks more to enter Engineering or Medical faculty than the sinhala students in south those days ie 1960s,1970s & 1980s

Even Government of UK will need several days to earn an income of 4 billion pounds......and these Sinhala modays are saying LTTE Shanthan has 4 billion pounds.

Biggest joke of the year by Sinhala media...4 Billion pounds with LTTE shanthan
