LTTE launches Euro Television: The new Tamil TV channel

Milan, Italy, 03 March, ( Sri Lanka Tamil separatist outfit, Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam has come up with another new Tamil Television channel in Europe. Already they have started the test telecast of the new Tamil TV channel from 1 March and is clearly seen at Eurobird 9 @ 9° East satellite platform.

Earlier, French Government banned on last May, the Tamil Television Network - TTN channel run by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam. After TTN channel was banned they came up with another channel called Tharishanam.

Tigers converted the Tharisanam TV channel, which is originally from Australia as a Pay channel in Europe and they are now minting money.

Tigers are very particular to safeguard the money minting Tharshanam TV Channel in Europe, by gradually reducing to the barest minimum, programs connected with the LTTE propaganda.

Anyhow, Tigers feel that it is important to continue with their aggressive propaganda campaign in the midst of the Tamil diaspora in Europe and they have launched the new Tamil TV channel to take forward their propaganda as well as their disinformation campaign against the Government of Sri Lanka in Europe.

The new channel called “Euro Television” which is presently telecast on a test basis, is reliably learnt launched by the Tigers in Switzerland. It is observed that they have already brought back in their employ many of their ex-TTN channel producers, commentators and others to the new TV channel.

Though the studio for new channel is located in Switzerland, the channel is televised from Milan in Italy. M-Three Satcom Srl (Reg. N° Milano 04480710963, Registered Office: Foro Bonaparte 71, 20121 Milano, Italy), a private business organisation is televising this Channel.

At present Tiger members and supporters in different European countries are busy making arrangements to link this channel in their respective countries through satelite recievers.

In the meantime, earlier the National Television of Tamil Eelam (NTT), which was televised from Vanni to Asia as well as to Europe via Intelsat satellite platform hence the illegal transmission of the NTT via Intelsat satellite came to light.

Subsequently, Bernard Goonatilake, Sri Lanka’s Ambassador in Washington took up this matter with the Intelsat authorities and ended the illegal transmission of the NTT channel via the Intelsat platform.

It is now learnt that Tigers in Vanni has restarted NTT channel beaming to Asia through AsiaSat satellite platform.
