* Sri Lanka CID arrests a high ranking member of LTTE financial wing
Tue, Mar 2, 2010, 12:07 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 02, Colombo: Sri Lanka Criminal Investigations Division (CID) has arrested a high ranking member of the LTTE's international finance wing, the state-owned radio reported.

The CID arrested the suspect, who has arrived in the country from Geneva in Switzerland on January 10th, while hiding in a house at Pallidora road in Dehiwala.

The CID says the suspect has arrived in the country to look into the business enterprises owned by the vanquished terrorist organization.

Reportedly the suspect has obtained a passport and visa after producing false information to the immigration and emigration controller.

Although Sri Lankan security forces have completely eliminated the top ranking members of the LTTE organization in the country, its international network remains functional, mostly in Western countries.

It has been reported that the LTTE received funds nearing 300 million dollars a year from its overseas network.

Sri Lanka arrested the LTTE's main arms procurer Kumaran Pathmanathan alias KP last August in a South Asian country and brought to Colombo. He has revealed valuable information on the international finances and operations of the terror outfit.
