LTTE is not a criminal organisation – Swiss Federal Criminal Court

Switzerland’s Federal Criminal Court has ruled that there is no evidence that the LTTE was a criminal organisation.

The Court also released thirteen Tamil political activists accused of raising funds for the LTTE’s armed struggle.

Whilst eight of them were acquitted of all charges, five were given suspended prison sentences for arranging loans through banks on false pretenses.
