Mosaic Of Diversity Alert: Canadian sentenced in U.S. to two years for Tamil Tigers conspiracy

A Canadian man has been sentenced in Brooklyn, N.Y., to two years for terrorism offences in connection with the Tamil Tigers.

Piratheepan Nadarajah, from Brampton, Ont., pleaded guilty to a conspiracy to acquire anti-aircraft missiles and attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization.

Prosecutors have said Nadarajah and co-conspirators negotiated with an undercover FBI agent to buy and export $1-million of high-powered weapons and military equipment for the Tamil Tigers.

Nadarajah was extradited last year alongside Suresh Sriskandarajah, who received a two-year sentence in October for conspiring to provide material support to the Tamil Tigers.
