Police have raided the offices of a Tamil organization in Montreal as part of an investigation into terrorist financing, the RCMP said yesterday.

A counter-terrorism team made up of RCMP, Montreal police and Quebec provincial police searched the Montreal office of the World Tamil Movement.

The search warrant says police are investigating four alleged criminal offences, all related to financing and facilitating terrorist activity.

"There were no arrests and it was mainly documents and information that were seized from the location," said Corporal Sylvain L'Heureux, an RCMP spokesman.

The raid occurred on the night of April 12 -- just two days after Public Safety Minister Stockwell Day announced the Tamil Tigers had been placed on Canada's list of banned terrorist organizations.
