LTTE is not a criminal organisation - Switzerland's Federal Supreme Court

Tuesday December 03, 2019

Switzerland's top court has made a landmark ruling that the LTTE is not a criminal organisation. 

 

The ruling has been made following an appeal by the Swiss government that sought to overturn the ruling of the Swiss Federal Criminal Court on 14 June 2018 that the LTTE is not a criminal group.

 

In its ruling today, the Swiss Federal Supreme Court also said collecting funds for the LTTE could not be construed as a crime in Switzerland.
