Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam’s arms procurer and later leader Kumar Pathmanadan under interrogation has revealed that US citizen Raj Rajaratnam who was arrested by the FBI had been a leading contributor of money to the terrorist group, Sri Lanka government sources said.

These contributions are intricately connected with the opposition politicians outside the LTTE but implementing a parallel political agenda with the terrorist group group,the sources said.The LTTE also known as the Tamil Tigers with its fronts is a proscribed terrorist group in the United States.

Sources close to the government said these revelations about Raj Rajaratnam’s contributions to the terrorist group tally with some findings of United States investigations.

KP who was arrested in a Kulalumpur Hotel is now in the custody of the Sri Lanka government being interrogated about the elaborate LTTE connections about its leading donors, influential Western connections who were on its pay roll, earnings of the group on drug and gun running and its intricate business empire.

KP has revealed that Raj Rajaratnam who was nabbed by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) after listening to him by wire taps for criminal insider trading scams has given money lavishly for the terrorist group and its Western sympathiser individuals.

KP’s evidence of the LTTE receiving money from America’s biggest swindler of its stock market have been collaborated by two letters now in the hands of the US intelligence.

The money of Raj Rajaratnam became the subject of litigation in Sri Lanka long before he was nabbed by the FBI. The state owned Sunday Observer of Colombo, pointed out when Raj Rajaratnam was arrested that the person involved in the case against the United National Party (UNP) stalwart and former Minister of Trade Ravi Karunanayaka of having sent one million US dollars to Karunanayaka was Raj Rajaratnam himself.

In that case under Sri Lanka’s Exchange Control Act Karunanayaka was prosecuted as an individual cannot receive foreign money without the sanction of the government.

Colombo High Court Judge Deepali Wijesundera enlarged Mr. Karunanayake on bail on the 10th of July this year after conducting inquiries. He was granted a cash bail of 100,000 Rupees and a personal bail of one million Rupees. The High Court also barred Ravi Karunanayake from leaving the country without its permission.
