KUALA LUMPUR: Tamil Nadu politician Senthamizhan Seeman may be banned from entering Malaysia if there is evidence that links him to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), says Deputy Comm Datuk Ayob Khan (pic).

The Bukit Aman Counter-Terrorism Division (E8) head said police are aware that Seeman has been entering Malaysia numerous times to meet politicians.

"However, we will investigate and see how deep is his role in channelling funds to LTTE or promoting the terror group.

"If there is basis, we will ask the Immigration Department to ban him from entering the country," he told a press conference in Bukit Aman on Sunday (Oct 13).

A news portal reported that Senthamizhan, who is the chief coordinator of the Naam Tamilar Katchi political party in Tamil Nadu, is allegedly a supporter of LTTE and is said to be working towards the group’s revival.

It also reported that Naam Tamilar is the link for a group of Malaysians, including some prominent politicians, in trying to keep the spirit of the Tamil Tigers alive.

The E8 has arrested 12 people, including two DAP assemblymen, since Thursday (Oct 10) for allegedly having links with LTTE.
