Man found guilty for backing Tamil Tigers

HAMBURG, Feb 3, (AFP): A Sri Lankan-born man received an 18-month suspended sentence in Germany Tuesday for membership of the rebel group the Tamil Tigers which Germany considers a terrorist organisation.

2The LTTE committed a string of attacks against civilian targets and national infrastructure during Sri Lanka’s decades-long civil war that killed more than 100,000 people and ended in 2009 when government forces crushed the rebels. The Hamburg court found that the man raised more than 81,000 euros ($88,000) for combat and terrorist activities including suicide attacks by the LTTE in its campaign for a separate Tamil homeland in the South Asian country
