The head of Malaysia’s Counter Terrorism Division has admitted that security forces are monitoring the activities of Tamil Nadu politician Senthamizhan Seeman, as authorities continued to crack down on Tamil activity they claim is linked to the LTTE.

 Bukit Aman's Special Branch Counter Terrorism Division (E8) chief, Deputy Comm Datuk Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay, claimed Seeman had links to the LTTE “elements” in Malaysia and may bar him from entering the country.

“As to how deep is his role in promoting and perhaps channelling monetary aid, or maybe giving advice for the LTTE elements in Malaysia to carry out their activities, we will monitor,” he added.

“Should there be a basis, we will request for the Immigration (Department) to stop him from entering Malaysia,” Ayob told a press conference at Bukit Aman here, today.

Bukit Aman's Special Branch Counter Terrorism Division (E8) chief, Deputy Comm Datuk Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay, said Seeman, who is also a popular actor who had previously visited Malaysia, has close ties wit LTTE “elements” in the country.

He added that authorities may bar him from entering Malaysia is he found to be a national security threat.

“This depends on the investigations which we will conduct on the 12 detained so far.”
