The Canada Revenue Agency has fined two Hindu temples in the Toronto area for sending money to a suspected front organization for the LTTE rebels following the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami.

The Richmond Hill Hindu Temple and the Hindu Mission of Mississauga, both registered charities, have been hit with 140,000 and 300,000 dollar fines over money they sent to “non-qualified recipients”.

The federal charities regulator said the temples had donated tens of thousands of dollars to the Tamils Rehabilitation Organization, which it called “part of the support network” of the LTTE.
