A man from Singapore who spent years in a U.S. prison after trying to funnel arms to the LTTE has been deported.

Prosecutors in Dallas announced the deportation of 51-year-old Balraj Naidu.

Naidu in 2010 was convicted in Baltimore of conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization and sentenced to nearly five years in prison.

Prosecutors say Naidu tried to buy 900,000 dollars worth weapons from an undercover business in Maryland.

Prosecutors say Naidu was part of a conspiracy to purchase weapons for the LTTE.

The State Department designated it as a terrorist organization in 1997.
