[b]LTTE enters cyber terrorism[/b]

The Intelligence Agency of the Sri Lanka’s Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) has begun its cyber terror tactics through its agents operating mainly from Norway. Elusive Shanmuganathan Sivasankaran , nom be guerre Pottu Amman, has launched cyber terrorism group and also launched two news websites of the intelligence agency [url][/url] and [url][/url]to put out threats, intimidations, send hate e-mails, to post spam, viruses and to hack websites.

These tactics are aimed at suppressing the free media exposing the horrors and terrors of the LTTE. Many new anti-LTTE websites, run by the Tamils have come up in recent times. Unable to face the barrage of fire coming from these websites, the LTTE has adopted cyber terror tactics to suppress this alternative media.

It is now a common tactic for the LTTE's cyber terror operatives to call the web hosting companies of the websites and threaten them with filing cases against them for hosting websites opposed to the LTTE. One such tactic is for an LTTE operative to pressure the web hosting companies in Europe and North America with a threat of court action if they do not remove anti-LTTE stories. They complain that those news items are a threat to their lives and the story should be removed.
