More and more information about so-called Facilitators and LTTE Tamil Tiger activities in Norway - It is possible to trace fundraising and bank accounts to Tamil terrorist organisations the last 20 years. Bank accounts in Den norske Creditbank, Bergenbank and Sparebanken Midt-Norge was found before the 1990. Aftenposten, a  major Norwegian newspaper, revealed in an article in 2001 that Norwegian authorities have been allowing transfer of funds to the Tamil Tigers, Hamas, ETA and other terrorist organisations. "Those missing were apparently overlooked on the UN list, and Norwegian authorities have been reluctant to add them for fear of unfairly exposing innocent bank customers, and risking damage claims."  According to LTTE they have six offices in Norway. The LTTE is hiding under more legitimate organisation like the Tamil Rehabilitation Organization (TRO) and The Tamil Coordinating Committee (TCC). Fifty persons works in the TCC network in Norway.  The LTTE also has a significant Norwegian support structure for fundraising and propaganda activities. LTTE fundraising in Norway is estimated that more than 5 million US dollars. The increasing Tamil community (10.000 ++) in Norway is paying yearly fees to LTTE and LTTE is involved in business activities in Norway. The LTTE propaganda activities have been successful in Norway. It is quite obvious the LTTE have been able to sell "their story" to the Norwegians and received the support of the Norwegian government and military.  With more than 10.000 Tamils in Norway, LTTE has become a political important partner for Norwegian political parties.  The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs also invited the LTTE to Norwegian military demonstrations.

The Oslo War Process


This report ( was written in 2002 …….and so far everything  has happened…. right up to the signing of the MOU… the rest WILL happen if we and the people of our country don’t act NOW.  Below are sections of the main document. I think we need to publish the entire document in as many SL newspapers as possible- with the Singhala translations – to educate as many people as possible. Telling any western country is really useless. Since India is their final target, we have to convince India  and get them directly involved. For any solution, THE NORWEGIANS HAVE TO GO – THAT IS PRIORITY ONE. Otherwise, eventually their plan will work. (While our ‘leaders’ are drooling over the dollars and may be the stupid leaders hope to get a “Peace Prize” - more money!!!) (Read the full analysis in SPUR).
