[b]Sydney, 14 August, ( [/b]Supporters of LTTE in Sydney are rejoicing over the killing of the Sri Lankan Foreign Minister Lakshman Kadirgamar. A private Sydney Tamil radio station Inbathamil Oli broke the news of the Sri Lankan Minister’s death during its morning broadcast on Saturday and soon listeners came on the air thanking the announcer for giving the good news. Sona Prince, a female announcer of the radio station came on the air waves and said she wanted to give sweets to the announcer who broke the news of Mr Kadirgamar’s death.

However, the same radio station during its Saturday evening broadcast gave high prominence to LTTE’s Political Commissar S.Paramu Tamilselvan’s denial of LTTE’s involvement in the assassination. It replayed Tamilselvan’s interview with BBC Tamil Service prominently.

One listener, who is a businessman running an Indian-Sri Lankan restaurant at Seven Hills in Sydney, participating in a radio discussion conducted by Inbathamil Oli suggested Kadirgamar’s assassination was the work of Anura Bandaranaike, brother of the present President of Sri Lanka.

A Tamil social worker in Sydney told this correspondent he was shocked when an LTTE supporter remarked that Kadirgamar’s assassination was long overdue.

LTTE supporters have long considered Kadirgamar, an ethnic Sri Lankan Tamil, a traitor for accepting a portfolio under President Chandrika Kumaratunge’s government and for getting LTTE banned as a terrorist organisation in the United States and in UK.
