A Sri Lankan-born man went on trial in Germany today charged with membership of the LTTE which Germany considers a terrorist organisation.

The 53-year-old German national, identified only as Yogendran G by the court, is accused of having raised funds during 2007-2009 for the LTTE in and around the northern city of Hamburg.

Prosecutors at the Hamburg court said the man raised more than 81,000 euros for combat and terrorist activities including suicide attacks carried out by the LTTE.

The accused, who said he had been a German citizen since 2007, did not speak in his defence on the opening day of the trial, which has been scheduled to run up until March 7th.
