Elagu Elaguppillai, a Sri Lankan-born physicist and businessman, whose campaign ads feature a prominent endorsement by Paul Martin, the Liberal leadership front-runner, fought the allegations and eventually obtained his clearance.Following a seven-day hearing, the committee concluded that while the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam was "recognized as a particularly ferocious [terrorist organization], which has few scruples about undertaking any action to advance its cause," the security concerns about Dr. Elaguppillai were unfounded.SIRC mentioned the case in its annual report to Parliament three years ago, but did not identify Dr. Elaguppillai as the subject of the review.He confirmed to the National Post that he was the unidentified complainant.Despite winning the SIRC appeal, he left the government and went to the University of Ottawa, where he co-founded the International Centre for Low Dose Radiation Research before launching his own business, Innopharm, a successful Markham pharmaceutical and biotechnology company that employs 79 people.Now Dr. Elaguppillai is running in the Nov. 10 election for regional council in Markham.Dr. Elaguppillai would not say where he stood on the issue of banning the Tamil Tigers, but said he is opposed to the influence exerted in Canada by supporters of the terrorist group.He compared himself to Ujjal Dosanjh, the former British Columbia premier, who was severely beaten for standing up against the influence of extremists within B.C.'s large Sikh community who were raising money to support violence in India's Punjab.Similarly, he said he has been ostracized by Tamil organizations angered that he left the Tamils Rehabilitation Organization.The Tamils Rehabilitation Organization was incorporated as a non-profit society in Ontario in August, 1995, and two weeks later Dr. Elaguppillai, who has a PhD from the University of Toronto and had spent two decades at the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, was named president.
