German had links with anti-Kudankulam stir, says Chidambaram

NEW DELHI: There was information to show that a German national, who was deported yesterday, had links with the anti-Kudankulam nuclear project protests which was not consistent with his tourist visa, Home Minister P Chidambaram said.

Addressing a press conference, he said Sonnteg Reiner Hermann was sent back to Frankfurt on a flight yesterday because his conduct here was certainly not consistent with a person who comes here as a tourist.

“There was information to show that he had links with the anti-Kudankulam stir that was not consitent with a person who had come here on a tourist visa,” he said.

The minister also disclosed that cases have been filed against four NGOs after it was found prima facie that they were involved in diversion of foreign funds from the purpose for which they were received.

He declined to give names of the organisation and nor would specifically say that these funds were used for fuelling anti-nuclear protests in Kudankulam.

Chidambaram said that the German national had come to India on a tourist visa despite a look-out notice against him for the activities he indulged in during his previous visit.

“A tourist who comes to India cannot associate with activities which are semi-political and protest activities. That is not for which a tourist visa is given,” he said.

On the cases against four NGOs, he said the CBI has been asked to register cases against two while the other two have been left to Tamil Nadu police.

“There is reason to believe funds were diverted from the purpose for which foreign funds were given. Prima facie there is evidence to register cases,” he said.
