Rt Hon John Key ,
Prime Minister of NZ.

Dear Mr Key,

You may remember that I wrote to you  about two weeks ago alerting you to the presence of a car in Wellington bearing the personalised plate bearing letters LTTE”

You acknowledged the concern we  conveyed that, this plate was a brazen declaration of support  to a terrorist organisation LTTE, described even by FBI USA, as one of the most brutal,who had invented the suicide vest worn by suicide bombers of today, that had terrorised Sri Lanka for three decades before they were laid to rest in Sri Lanka in May 2009, though it’s international support remained very much intact. We called for the withdrawal of the plate and for the owner of the plate to be placed under surveillance. You referred the matter to MFAT to progress it further.

In the mean while we also made a Police complaint along the same grounds but adding also that this plate was offensive to many like us who had been victims of Tiger terror from whom we had fled to New Zealand. We also made the point that with this offensive taunt, they were being provocative and so threatening the peace of New Zealand and ethnic harmony in New Zealand.

I am pleased to report Detectives Ben Evans & Luke Jimmieson of the Wellington Crime Squad , who recorded and acted promptly on our complaint have now secured the surrender of this offensive plate from the owner and send it to the manufacturer for destruction, whilst delisting LTTE” from the available plates.

While we are very grateful to these officers for the successful outcome of this complaint, we wish to thank you very much for your earlier  acknowledging of our concern. We believe that this initial action on your part was also an added and significant help to this successful outcome.

We believe that New Zealand is fortunate to have Prime Minister who is able to appreciate what is important for it’s people ,as demonstrated in this case.

Long may it last.

Yours Sincerely,

Dr. Chula NA Rajapakse MNZM
