The Mothers of Missing Tamil Children have written a letter to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, urging him to investigate the Canadian Tamil Congress, which is affiliated with the Himalaya Follies.
Let me read the contents of the letter for you all.
We appreciate your recognition of the genocide that occurred in Sri Lanka against Tamils. As mothers of missing Tamil children, this acknowledgement has brought us great comfort. We also commend your efforts in advocating for genocide victims and supporting the oppressed Palestinians. Your commitment to peace in Palestine and your initiatives to establish secure international monitoring borders for Gaza and the West Bank are truly admirable.
However, we would like to bring your attention to a concerning issue involving the Canadian Tamil Congress (CTC). It has come to our attention that the CTC recently held a meeting with a Sri Lankan war criminal who is prohibited from entering Canada due to accusations of war crimes and human rights violations by the UN and other international bodies. Engaging in conversation with this individual may be seen as a violation of Canada’s foreign policy and a show of support for a war criminal. This puts the CTC in a difficult position and portrays them as enablers of genocide.
In addition, there have been allegations that this war criminal has been using unlawfully obtained funds from Sri Lanka’s treasury to establish various businesses in Toronto, including wedding halls and restaurants. Concerns have also been raised about certain individuals associated with the Tamil Canadian Congress being involved in questionable business practices. It is crucial that investments made in Canada do not involve money laundering activities.
Furthermore, there appears to be a connection between the Ayyappan Temple in Toronto and this alleged war criminal’s investments through CTC members. We have learned that CTC and its supporters have received funds and consistently made payments of $1,000,000 to a member of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) during his visits to Canada. We believe it is essential for Revenue Canada to thoroughly investigate these transactions. Allegedly, this MP utilizes this funding to silence his critics in Sri Lanka by bribing fellow party members and media outlets, effectively positioning himself as an unofficial leader of the TNA.
It is important for us to clarify that despite its Tamil name and Tamil members, the CTC is not a Tamil association. Instead, it appears to serve as a Sinhala organization driven by the pursuit of money and fame. It is crucial that the CTC does not mislead Tamils or international organizations.

We kindly request your attention in addressing these concerns and ensuring that justice is served. Thank you for your understanding.
