Asian separatists

Asian separatist organisations such as the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) from Sri Lanka with a total of c. 1,000 adherents, and extremist groupings from the Sikh religious community (mainly from the Indian state of Punjab) with a total of c. 800 adherents, primarily carry out propaganda activities in Germany. However, they also attempt to procure financial means to support their parent organisations operating abroad – some of them even by using violence.

In Germany, several LTTE adherents were given prison sentences of several years for violations of the Foreign Trade and Payments Law, and individuals from the extremist Sikh spectrum were given prison sentences of several years i.a. for being active as members/supporting a terrorist association and for violating the Weapons Act.
