great extent, but LTTE sympathisers were still surreptitiously engaged
in fund raising activities and demanding ransom payments from innocent
Tamil citizens. Sri Lankan Ambassador Hemantha Warnakulasuriya said the
Italian Government and police were countering terrorist activities with
a strong hand.
The Italian Government was closely working with the intelligence
services and other authorities to put a full stop to LTTE activities in
More than 100,000 Sri Lankans work in Italy in various capacities and
remitting large amount of foreign exchange earnings to the country.
