Sri Lanka puts Aussie group on ‘terrorist’ list. The Dr Sam Pari scandal continues

April 6, 2014

Australian Tamil Congress has been listed by the Sri Lanka Government as a terror organisation. 

More than a dozen Tamil organisations to have been listed as a terror group by Sri Lanka’s government after equipment and funds were confiscated and linked to foreign networks.

Sri Lanka’s High Commissioner to Australia Thisara Samarasinghe says:

“They had a big logistic network and this money turned into hardware and they bought into big merchant vessels and finally by various means they reached the shores of Sri Lanka. So it is critically obvious that there is a financial network, purchase network, logistics network and a support banking network in foreign countries.”

Dr Sam Pari, from the Australian Tamil Congress has angrily denies that it’s a terror group. 

“These allegations that have been brought on us by the Sri Lankan Government are false and they are very serious acts of discrediting the Australian Tamil Congress, which has maintained a very good name and a very good reputation among the mainstream Australian public. We have a very good reputation and good relationship with Australian politicians and the Australian media and Australian policy makers.”
