A Canadian who helped the LTTE acquire “sophisticated military technology” was sentenced by a New York judge to two years imprisonment.

Suresh Sriskandarajah, also known as “Waterloo Suresh,” had pleaded guilty in July to conspiracy to provide material support to the terrorist organization.

In pre-sentencing arguments, he had asked to be released immediately with time served, but U.S. prosecutors had sought a 15-year prison term, saying he had committed a “gravely serious offence.”

In December, he was extradited to New York to stand trial on charges related to his alleged attempts to “procure sophisticated military technology” for the rebels between 2004 and 2006.
