LTTE Asian propaganda channel terminated

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 Programme TV Channel through their Asia SAT 3S Satellite.

The Tamil Cultural Programme TV Channel beamed toward Asia, Middle East and some of the Central European countries broadcast LTTE propaganda programs in Tamil language.

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 AsiaSat management as well as the Governments of Hong Kong SAR and China.
