Posted on 05 July 2012 by admin

A Canadian, accused of organizing the MV Sun Sea human smuggling operation has been arrested at Toronto’s Pearson airport after arriving on a flight from Germany. The RCMP had been looking for Nadarajah Mahendran since June 6, when he and two others were charged in connection with smuggling 492 Sri Lankan asylum seekers to Canada from Southeast Asia in 2010. The former Toronto convenience store owner and alleged alien smuggler had left Canada after being questioned by authorities. He traveled to Sri Lanka, his birthplace. While he was away, police issued a warrant for his arrest. He was taken into custody last Monday, after his flight landed in Toronto.
