Information has been received that although the Sri Lankan Security Forces militarily defeated the LTTE in May 2009, LTTE activists and its followers still collect funds internationally.
This is also the belief of the Sri Lankan Government.
The LTTE earlier used a large number of NGOs for this purpose.
TRO or the Tamil Rehabilitation Organisation too belongs to this category.
The US State Department made this revelation while presenting its annual report with regard to terrorism.
The report further said that the Sri Lankan Government was still on the alert about LTTE's overseas financial links.
Similarly the main objective of anti-terrorism measures currently adopted by Sri Lanka is also to inactivate this financial network.
