LTTE Global Terrorist Business: Lucrative venture for all supporters

Even Prabakaran would not have expected or dreamed that the rebel movement he formed would turn into a virtual global enterprise. You name it, LTTE supporters have a ready company for every associated ‘grievance’ ‘complaint’ ‘right’ generating both employment and income and the ability to use that money to lobby and ‘buy over’ people even foreign politicians. This is other than the international network of illicit activities LTTE Inc indulges in by a totally different set of people though they all get connected to a handful of very powerful players domiciled overseas who have mastered the art of fanning the ‘Sinhala discrimination’ line and then tapping into the in vogue demands of ‘self-determination’ knowing these to be the perfect ingredients to plug western players into their fold and thus camouflage their business enterprise that keeps thriving by the day. The thriving enterprise is such that its continuous depends on sustaining the chants that generates the livelihoods for many. It is for this reason we will never see any solution ever and why solutions will never be excepted either. It is futile placing any solutions ignoring these factors.
LTTE international network comprises both illegal and legal businesses.
Media & Propaganda:
- LTTE media comprises – Tamilnet, Voice of Tigers, TRT, Eelanadu, TV24
- 2015 – LTTE Nediyawan Faction Launches a new Tamil TV channel ‘Deepam’
LTTE has its own tv, radio, websites, magazines, social media sites. All generate their own incomes and from its profits make further investments. Generating employment to Tamils domiciled overseas, perhaps to those who are illegally staying in foreign climes, their 24×7 job duties entail spreading all types of lies and distortions against Sri Lanka and in particular against the Sinhalese. A livelihood based on lies.
Where witnesses and documentaries are needed – they have resources and funds to either make their own or outsource to white skinned producers who would do anything for a handsome payment. We know the outcome of the C4 productions. The star performers were LTTE agents.
From makeup artists, photographers, cameramen, journalists, researchers, technicians, editors, broadcasters, publicists, audio operators, news producers, news presenters, news analysts, screen writers, script writers, actors, actresses, media consultants and advisors are just a handful of job opportunities for Tamils who align to the LTTE network businesses. Even the wailers and hooters at demonstrations and street protests are readily available.
Lets also not forget the printers who come up with the racist posters as well as the others who provide the transport logistics etc. There would probably be another lot of people providing the food and refreshments too. You name it there is some job area opened for these LTTE propagandists and these are all lucrative ventures. So you can imagine how LTTE Inc is thriving and now foreigners also stand a chance of getting employed. We see a large number of white men and women now holding portfolios in some of these LTTE fronts. They are people who have compromised their integrity for money.
These are all well paid jobs and to keep the job one needs to keep the lie alive… now you got the drift!
NGOs & Charities
Every area covered by the UN and every loophole that can be tapped will find some LTTE NGO set up to decry human rights violations by Sinhalese, genocide by Sinhalese, discrimination by Sinhalese, denial of education, food, health etc by Sinhalese but none of them can explain how Tamils are rich and are doing far better than the majority of the majority Sinhalese!
These NGOs & Charities are well established and linked to covert foreign government operations where they function on an understanding of you tap our back and we will tap yours. However, instances of overstepping their line has resulted in investigations and bans like the TRO.

The charities carry out the same modus operandi but are aligned to the LTTE media networks wherever fund raising requires a bit of drama and sensationalism. So you have the presenter, the witness, the victim all on one side and the panelists and consultants who brought in to evaluate and analyse are also on the same side! The white inductions in the form of the Cage author, the journo still counting the dead add that spice and give the notion that the grievance is so huge that the whites have entered the scene as saviors! Some of these white sympathizers were even shedding tears at the funeral of LTTE theoretician and we have lost count of the assistance that country gave the Tiger movement.
Majority of these foreign registered charities are pumping into all the welfare systems of the state and yes they have their own set of people to find where loopholes prevail and how they can spin the story to secure the welfare all of which are tax free. Recently CM in the North tried his best to secure a UN job for his relation in order to pull strings within the UN system but luckily that failed as such positions needed to be cleared by the GOSL.
However, a plethora of LTTE agents are also employed in the notorious list of NGOs famed for their roles in regime change and funded by foreign governments and capitalist industrialists. These employees do a more damaging role by feeding false information, inflated statistics and fake news to help create damaging reports all which are tabled in the UN through NGO representations and we know how LTTE fronts openly lobby in Geneva. Just look at the local staff of these NGOs to realize why they spread lies.
Similarly, agents are also placed inside foreign embassies where they play a major role in helping pass visas to ‘their’ people without hassle. Take the key embassies in Colombo and look at the local staff to confirm this.
“Economic migrants’ tag has become quite a damaging aspect and to camouflage that there are agents that have set up legal centres where people actually pay to be burnt with cigarette butt ends and other physical abuses and yes they have a doctor ready to vouch that the injury was ‘recent’ and by Sri Lankan military and not stopping there, another group of people have now formed training units where ‘asylum seekers’ are trained to cry, to tell stories of abuse, rape etc and prepare them for their interview. All this for a good payment of course but it’s a case of what goes from the right hand comes back to the right hand! And if anything goes wrong there are agent lawyers to come to their assistance! What an incredible set up that has been created.
Of course the other noteworthy manoeuvre has been to ensure that Tamils live in pockets overseas thus enabling them to create ghetto areas where they can use their numbers to sway local government politicians to align with their demands in return with the promise to give them the votes at elections. This has worked so well and is a blueprint used across EU nations, UK, Canada, Australia and US. Every time a foreign MP speaks on behalf of the slogans raised by LTTE fronts immediately check the constituency he is representing!
Another noticeable feature is that increasingly the Tamil caste divide has again emerged. Though LTTE discouraged this as it was an impediment to their overall objective, LTTE now without its megalomaniac leader has no one to bring out the belt and so the caste differences have arisen to appalling levels both in Sri Lanka and overseas.
These are all the legal dealings of the LTTE Inc.. so you can gage the numbers involved and why majority of them are reluctant to denounce LTTE crimes and instead prefer to brainwash their own minds into believing the lies they have spun!
The spin doctors include actual doctors, the academic doctorate holders, trickling down to cover all spheres of industries all of which are interconnected to LTTE Inc.
Of course there are internal rifts and squabbles but they are all kept under wraps and never exposed.
In the UK most of the kovils are now under LTTE influence, the gala dinners and charity events come at a big price per head which every Tamil attending has to pay, another means of generating income. Throughout the year there will be similar events on the guise of commemorating Prabakaran and his cadres to which all Tamils are expected to attend and contribute…all income generating avenues!
Let’s presume the above to be the front office, there’s bigger happenings in the back office where a host of illegal activities include credit card scams, extortions from Tamils (kappan collectors – probably Tamils who do not wish to be part of the LTTE Inc network) human smuggling, trafficking refugees, illegal narcotics & drug trafficking, illegal arms transporting, trafficking black market goods, social security frauds, hawala, money laundering, LTTE even has its own ships that carry out bulk of these illegal activities.
Therefore it is imperative that we understand that the LTTE Inc has become a livelihood generator. It has uplifted the lives of many Tamils, which is one reason why majority of Tamils are hesitant to denounce the LTTE. They cannot do so because they are indirectly benefitting from it. They all want to sustain the LTTE Inc because it is a means of sustaining themselves. This is one reason why their proposals are related to items they know the majority would oppose. In fact, they want the majority to oppose. There is a reason why Prabakaran refused every proposal put before him including CBK’s offer of running the areas under his control for 10 years without election.
It is unfortunate that while a handful of Tamils prospered they did so at the cost of putting their own people on the line. The cadres of the LTTE were all low caste and from impoverished homes. Poverty inducted them into becoming cadres. Whatever, Mano Ganeshan may say coming from the estate Tamil community he should know that the place of the estate Tamils to the elite high class/caste Tamils is lower than the low caste Tamils. The caste factor among Tamils and within the fighting cadres of the LTTE will help to understand the true status quo.
Taking all above into consideration, policy makers cannot and should not place any proposals forward without understanding the dynamics of what the LTTE Inc has torpedoed into. Why else would they create a ‘transnational government’ it is with the intent of bringing all these legal and illegal activities under one umbrella and use that power to influence and lobby locally and internationally. The eelam is simply a cover and one that is being flogged knowing its geopolitical interest for both India and the West both historically eyeing our island nation for both political and economic leverage.
Terrorism as a livelihood seems relevant to other terrorist movements as well. There are a lot of entities who make a livelihood by portraying themselves as conflict resolutionists but with no intent to resolving any issue but sustaining their own livelihood. It’s a vicious circle of people thriving from the sufferings of others and they have no qualms at all.
TERRORISM TODAY IS A BUSINESS
