Note:

The despicable but ingenious manipulation by the Terrorists Government of Srilanka by presenting the Liberation Tigers of Thamil Eelam (LTTE) as a terrorists organisation, countries like China, USA, Great Britain, Russia, Pakistan, Israel and ‘India have provided Intelligence, Military assistance and above all Black Propaganda against the LTTE to eliminate the Tamil Group in 2009. The only consolation is the birth of TGTE (Transnantional Government of Tamil Eelam- website: www.tgte.org) based in New York under the leadership of Visvanathan Rudrakumaran , a New York based lawyer who was elected by the Tamil Diaspora unanimously. It has all the structure of a Government without a country but operating from a hostile country that helped the misdeed of the Terrorists State of Srilanka. It is important the readers to understand that LTTE has never ever carried out any violent activities outside Srilanka during its 40 year existence, yet LTTE was listed as an International Terrorists Organisation by the International Community.
