US have NO JURISDICTION in Singapore nor Sri Lanka
Simply the USA have no jurisdiction in Singapore nor Sri Lanka, which are both world recognized independent sovereignties apart from USA. US have no jurisdiction over the territories of Singapore and Sri Lanka. Mr. Balldev Naidu did not committed any alleged offense within the jurisdiction boundary of USA or on US soil. It is coward and treasonous on the part of famiLEE LEEgime to compromise our sovereignty to the USA, by handing Mr. Balldev Naidu to the USA.
If the man broke any law in Singapore, let Singaporean judiciary trial him under Singaporean law. The US law is inapplicable on Singaporeans who are within our very territory of sovereignty. Does LEEgime traitors and suckers know the meaning of SOVEREIGNTY & INDEPENDENCE?
Does old dog thief Lee Kuan Yew still remember his Merdeka slogan meaning independence?
Traitor old dog thief!
A the very most the Tamil Tiger fighters are considered as separatist and that is apart from terrorists. They fought in control of held rebel territories on which they claim independent sovereignty apart from Sri Lankan regime. The LTT is not a secretive army they have uniform and they fight in open ground wars unlike Al Qaeda or JI.
I like to highlight that Old Dog Thief Lee Kuan Yew himself has the identical background of separatism in which he rebelled Federal Malaysian Govt after failing to gain power as PM of Malaysia. The late ex-PM Tun Razak who is father of current Malaysia PM Najib, had insisted to arrest TRAITOR Old Dog Thief Lee Kuan Yew under Internal Security Act just like Mas Selamat.
The Malaysian government of the day is still seeking the return of Malaysian citizens detained illegally in the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba by US in Bush & Obama's so called War On Terror. Why should Singapore's famiLEE LEEgime betray our own sovereignty to suck up to the USA?
I say punish the famiLEE LEEgime cowardly traitors! Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka!
Singapore party member extradited to US: report
SINGAPORE — A Singapore opposition party member has been extradited to the United States where he stands accused of trying to supply arms to Sri Lanka's defeated Tamil Tiger rebels, according to a report Friday.
Balldev Naidu, 47, a businessman and co-founder of the Reform Party, was extradited on December 18, the Straits Times newspaper said quoting the Ministry of Home Affairs.
He is wanted on charges of acting as a broker between firearms manufacturers and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) between February and September 2006, as well as seeking to export the arms illegally from the United States to Sri Lanka.
His alleged accomplice, Singaporean Haniffa Osman, 57, had pleaded guilty to the charges in 2008 and was sentenced to 37 months' jail by a Baltimore court.
Naidu had been detained in Singapore prior to the extradition following his arrest by local authorities in September.
He is a founding member of Singapore's tiny opposition Reform Party.
The party's secretary-general Kenneth Jeyaretnam said last month that the US charges involved activities alleged to have occurred before the party was set up in 2008.
Jeyaretnam had described Naidu as "a gentle family man and someone who would never intentionally become involved with terrorists or arms dealers".
Singapore has been home to a close-knit Tamil minority since British colonial days and hosts thousands of workers from Sri Lanka and southern India. Tamil is one of Singapore's official languages.
Sri Lankan troops destroyed the Tamil Tigers' leadership in May, ending one of Asia's longest-running insurgencies.
The Tamil Tigers had been campaigning since 1972 for a separate homeland for the island's Tamil minority and drew support from members of the overseas Tamil community.
