Pro-LTTE radio broadcast in Sri Lanka

The pro-LTTE Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) today announced that it will start broadcasting Radio News to Sri Lanka starting from May 18 this year.

The TGTE Radio called ‘Naatham’ will broadcast on the shortwave frequency. The Radio can also be heard in India, Malaysia and Singapore where large number of Tamils live.

TGTE says while this broadcast will become a bridge between the Tamil diaspora and the Tamils living in Sri Lanka, it will also play a role to politically and emotionally link Tamils worldwide.

The first special broadcast will be on May 18, for one hour from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm, Sri Lanka time. TGTE has designated May 18th as the Tamil National Mourning Day to remember tens of thousands of Tamils killed during the war.

“While the Tamils in the island of Sri Lanka are struggling to cope with the mass killing and be subject to systematic and pervasive human rights violation on account of their Tamil nationality, this broadcast will ease the pain and give them confidence that their dream of achieving sovereign and independent state of Tamil Eelam will become a reality,” the so called ‘Prime Minister’ of the TGTE Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran said. “This broadcast will pierce the strict media censorship in Sri Lanka and reach the Tamils to give them unbiased information.”

Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) has its own constitution a Prime Minister, a 10 member Cabinet and a Speaker. (Colombo Gazette)
