Latest In the MV Sun Sea Saga: Terrorists Aboard?

Well this shouldn't come as a surprise to most people:

Dozens of Tamil migrants segregated:

Police checking for links to Tigers, paramilitary, crimes against humanity

By TOM GODFREY, Toronto Sun

More than three dozen Tamil migrants have been segregated from 492 others who arrived by boat for questioning by police on suspicion of being linked to the Tamil Tigers, or other inadmissible groups, including war criminals.

Those held in “segregation” at Fraser Regional Correctional Centre, in B.C., include the skipper of the MV Sun Sea, Kamalraj Kandasamy, a.k.a “Captain Vinod,” his 24-man crew and about a dozen migrants who arrived Aug. 13 off the coast of B.C. after a 90-day trip from Thailand.

Police said the suspects are being interviewed and undergoing extensive background checks by the RCMP, CSIS and Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) on suspicion of alien smuggling, being members of the Tamil Tigers terrorist group, a Sri Lankan paramilitary group or for taking part in crimes against humanity.

Police said several men were moved to a segregation unit because they were “threatening or intimidating” other migrants.

Yep, that last sentence is the red flag the police and immigration authorities were looking for. One of the modus operandi of the LTTE is "threatening or intimidating" their fellow tamils. There were stories here in Toronto about the local branch of the LTTE, before the Conservatives labeled them a terrorist organization, shaking down tamil workers and store owners for "donations" to fund the civil war in Sri Lanka. Mafia thug style requests (nice store/business/job you got here, be a real shame if something happened to it...).

Anyway, of the three dozen or so segregated? The entire crew of the MV Sun Sea. They are currently being investigated as LTTE (Tamil Tigers), human smugglers, and weapon smugglers. Where were they getting weapons from? North Korea. Yep, one of the three "Axis of Evil" nations labeled by George W. Bush.

Of course some people are still in denial:

He denied allegations by the Public Safety Minister Vic Toews that members of the Tamil Tigers were among the group, who paid up to $50,000 for the smuggling trip.

“I guess federal officials want to know more about some people,” Poopalapillai said. “There are no terrorists on board the ship.”

Oh right, one persons terrorist is another persons freedom fighter. Right Poopalapillai? I wonder who the muslim terrorists learned about the suicide bombing explosive vest trick from? That's right, LTTE who employed it early on in their campaign of terror. They were kind enough as well to actually show other terrorists how to build them properly.

There's more details in the article. I can't wait until we get even more info about these illegal immigrants and queue jumpers.
