June 26, Colombo: A Sri Lankan court has sentenced a Tamil Tiger cadre in absentia to 30 years of imprisonment for his involvement in terrorist activities.

The Vavuniya High Court Judge on Tuesday sentenced Ravi Shankar Kanagarajah, a senior LTTE cadre to 30 years imprisonment for supplying arms shipments to the LTTE terrorist outfit.

The convicted Tiger cadre is currently living in Canada and an INTERPOL red notice has been issued against him for his apprehension, the police said.

Police spokesman SSP Ajith Rohana said that a red notice had been issued on the fugitive in 2010.

The convicted cadre had been a former captain of a ship before joining the LTTE and he has been accused of supplying three arm ships to LTTE in 1996, 1997 and 1999.

He had been involved in human smuggling activities in Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand and the main procurement agent for the LTTE, the police spokesman said.
