[b]Toronto, 17 March, (Asiantribune.com):[/b]Recent exposure by the New York based Human Rights Watch on the Sri Lanka’s Tamil Separatist Organization – Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam’s continued and systematic intimidation and extortion of Tamil Diaspora has subjected them for the very first time in Canada for a public vilification of the Tamil community in country.
The well documented report released by the Human Rights Watch seems to have emboldened a section of the Sri Lanka Tamil community in Canada to defy the LTTE and openly speak out against it.
"As Canadian Tamils, we welcome the recent report by Human Rights Watch, Funding the 'Final War': LTTE Intimidation and Extortion in the Tamil Diaspora, which documents the persistent and systematic extortion and intimidation of the Tamil community by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE)."
