[b]Toronto, 02 May, ([/b] Canadian Government should come forward to take appropriate actions to institute investigations into the fund raising carried on by the LTTE controlled Tamil Rehabilitation Organization, the Canadian Tamil Congress and other pro-LTTE groups supposedly for Tsunami Relief Work in Sri Lanka totaling over 2.5 million dollars according to figures published in the media, to ensure that these funds were utilized for the declared purposes.

Mahinda Gunasekera, President of the Sri Lanka United National Association of Canada has urged this in a letter he addressed to Stockwell Day, MP, Canada’s Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness.

In his letter Mahinda Gunasekwra also pointed out, "The legitimacy of the work carried on by the propaganda arm of the Tamil Tigers which operates television, radio, and print media outlets in Canada, to directly support the LTTE by glorifying their violence and also assist in fundraising campaigns too should be looked at more closely, and new regulations enacted as done in the UK and other allied nations."
