Two top Tiger agents in London to be charged soon

London, 27 June, ( A. C. Shanthan, president of the British Tamil Association, the high-ranking agent of the Tamil Tigers, and the head of finance, Goldan Lambert, are to be charged in the Royal Court of Justice in London soon, according official sources. Two top office bearers of the British Tamil Assoaciation who were arrested on 21 June in London are to be formally charged in the courts soon.

According to the British Metropolitan Police sources, both were arrested under Section 12 (3) of the UK Terrorism Act wich prohibits `support for a terrorist organisation.` The LTTE was banned along with 20 other groups, as a foreign terrorist organisation in 2001..

Immediately after the arrests, the anti-terrorist police launched simultaneous raids on the head office of the BTA `Eelam House` located in Mitcham, Surrey, and the office of the Tamil Youth Organisation (TYO) in Colindale, London and the house of Shanthan in Croyden.

The metropolitan Police have removed computers and loads of documents from Eelam House. Sources said that the computers and the documents found in the Eelam House would soon give a clear picture to the Police about those who were involved in the collection funds and also details of those people who have continue to funds the LTTE.

It is believed the search of the office of the Tamil Youth Organisation (TYO) in Colindale was unconnected with the arrest of Shanthan and Goldan Lambert, but it was about the Tamil gangsters. According to sources police have found knives, swords and other crude lethal weapons.

Sources revealed the search at Shanthan house in Croyden still continues. As the search continues Metropolitan Police have accommodated Shanthans wife and three children in a hotel.
