Sri Lanka's External Affairs Minister Prof. G. L. Peiris has said that the remnants of the defeated Tamil terrorist organization of Sri Lanka, Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) is still active in Australia and asked Australia to proscribe the terror outfit.
In an interview with an Australian newspaper, The Australian, Sri Lankan Minister has said the LTTE network operating in Australia is involved in the people-smuggling business bringing Sri Lankan boatpeople to Australia.
