A new US report has stated that The LTTE’s international network of sympathizers and financial support continued to operate throughout 2012, and there were multiple reports of increased LTTE involvement in human smuggling out of refugee camps.


The US Country Reports on Terrorism 2012 released by the US State Department said The LTTE used its international contacts and the large Tamil diaspora in North America, Europe, and Asia to procure weapons, communications, funding, and other needed supplies.


The group employed charities as fronts to collect and divert funds for their activities.


The US State Department said The Sri Lankan government’s comprehensive and aggressive counterterrorism stance is a direct result of its experience in this nearly three decades-long conflict.
