Sri Lanka
Former Tamil Tiger Commander Shot Dead in Paris
2012-11-10
[An Nahar] A Sri Lankan man who was bumped off in Gay Paree was Friday identified as Nadarajah Mathinthiran, a former Tamil Tiger commander who had been convicted in La Belle France of extortion and raising funds for terrorism.

Mathinthiran, who was born in 1963, was rubbed out on Thursday evening as he came out of the headquarters of the Tamil Coordination Committee in La Belle France (CCTF), an organization regarded as a front for what remains of the Tigers.

The assassin expeditiously departed at a goodly pace and has not been jugged
... anything you say can and will be used against you, whether you say it or not...

Judicial sources said there was no evidence to link Mathinthiran's killing to his past political activities.

Mathinthiran was sentenced to five years in prison in February following his conviction in a Gay Paree court for extortion, financing terrorism and membership of a criminal gang as part of a broader investigation into racketeering in the Sri Lankan expatriate community.

As he had already served more than three years in prison after first being jugged
... anything you say can and will be used against you, whether you say it or not...
in 2007, Mathinthiran was able to do a deal with the authorities that avoided him being placed back behind bars.

#1  there was no evidence to link Mathinthiran's killing to his past political activities.

Payback for his past involvement in a long, nasty little war or disapproval over his current racketeering activities, it matters not to Nadarajah at this point.
