Kulam is the second regional (Swiss) LTTE leader now in police custody. Already Parithi, the LTTE Leader for France is one of the 14 Tigers arrested by the French Police.

Furthermore, in Melbourne Australia, two Tiger agents – Aruran Vignanamoorthy and S. Yathavan, the head of the LTTE paper Eelamurasu – were arrested early this and refused bail.

Tiger thugs have a record of attacking members of rival Tamil parties in Europe and America and Canada. One of the first to be attacked was Ketheeswarn Loganathan, the peace activist who was killed in Colombo by Tiger assassins. He was first attacked in Oslo Norway when he and an EPRLF MP were attending a course at the Peace Research Institute Oslo. Norway has turned a blind eye to the criminal activities of the Tigers who have infiltrated into the Norwegian left-wing political parties of which system Erik Solheim, the peace facilitator, is a member.
