Asia Sat Terminates Transmission of TCP TV Channel

Colombo, 02 September, ( The Hong Kong based management office of Asia Sat Telecommunication Company has informed the Sri Lanka Embassy in Beijing that they have terminated the transmission of Tamil Cultural Program TV Channel through their Asia SAT 3S Satellite.

The Tamil Cultural Program TV Channel beam toward Asia, Middle East and some of the Central European countries broadcast LTTE propaganda programs in Tamil language for the benefit of the Tamil speaking people as well as the LTTE sympathizers.

The Government of Sri Lanka took up the broadcasting of TCP program with the Asia Sat Management Office in Hong Kong and requested them to terminate the facility. The Government pointed out that the LTTE is a terrorist organization outlawed by a number of countries and transmission of the propaganda material of this organization would harm the good image of Asia Sat management as well as the Governments of Hong Kong SAR and China.
