First anti-terror financing conviction

A BC man became the first person to be convicted under Canada's anti-terrorism financing law when he was sentenced on Friday to six months in jail for financing the Tamil Tigers, the Vancouver Sun reported. Prapaharan Thambithurai pled guilty after he admitted to police that he knew a portion of the money he was collecting was being directed to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, which is a listed terrorist organization in Canada. Mr. Thambithurai was arrested in 2008 while fundraising for the World Tamil Movement.
