Accordingly the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Israel informed the Israeli Satlink, "In light of the high political importance that we see in resolving the issue, according to the manner required by the government of Sri Lanka, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is of the opinion that it is not appropriate that an Israeli company shall provide services, directly or indirectly to a body that is identified with a terror organization such as the LTTE.
Therefore, we will be thankful for taking our aforesaid standpoint into consideration in the continuation of your activity. Asian Tribune learnt that subsequently Satlink issued 72 hours notice on Friday of its intention of shutting down of the LTTE Television from the satellite platform. Accordingly, Tharishanam TV yesterday ran a running announcement that the TV will go off from air from today onwards due to the pressure exerted by the Sri Lanka Government.
They also vowed to their viewers that though closed, they may reemerge through another platform. Many viewers said that this is a ploy for not coming forward pay back the balance of the suscriptions they recieved from the viewers. However, at the time of posting this news item, Tharishanam has removed the running announcement regarding the closure of the TV and opened up as free to air.
But instead of the running the announcement, the TV makes special announcements at the end of each program, that they are going off the air from today onwards due to the pressure exerted by the Sri Lanka Government to the Government of Israel.
At the time of shutting down of the TTN pay channel, it had 22, subscribers drawing around Euro Dollarsper month. Subsequently, Tharishanam expanded its programmes from London to other European countries through agreements reached with Israel based Satlink and France based Globecast companies. Scheduling of programmes of Tharishanam is done from Israel in accordance with the instructions given by Tharishanam office based in London.
However RRSat ceased transmissions once the matter was brought to the notice of the authorities. However due to timely intervention this too was stopped. According to the information we have received, the company under your management is broadcasting, via satellite, a Tamil channel named Tharishanam.
The content of the broadcast includes propaganda on behalf of LTTE, to the Tamil community exiling in Europe, including an effort for money raising for the benefit of the activity of this organization in Sri Lanka. The government of Sri Lanka required from the State of Israel to act so that the Israeli company will cease the broadcast of the Tamil channel.
For your knowledge, the Tamil underground LTTE, is battling for independence in east of Sri Lanka and is making use of means of terror and violence. Said underground is defined as a terror organization in the United States, Canada, the European Union countries and India.
It is not yet defined as a terror organization in Israel. However, any connection between it and an Israeli body is highly problematic and even extremely severe in light of Israel's coping against the terror organizations.
In light of the high political importance that we see in resolving the issue, according to the manner required by the government of Sri Lanka, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is of the opinion that it is not appropriate that an Israeli company shall provide services, directly or indirectly to a body that is identified with a terror organization such as the LTTE.
