The US based Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) leader has announced that the LTTE proposed Provisional Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (PTGTE) will function as an organization of the Tamil Diaspora.

In the United States, UK, and Canada where there are large communities of Sri Lankan Tamils and where the LTTE is banned as a terrorist organization, the so called PTGTE will function as a front of the old LTTE still carrying on activities aimed at separatism in Sri Lanka.

The LTTE leader based in New York, USA Vishuanadan Rudrakumaran has made this announcement in

Operating in front organizations is nothing new to terrorist organizations and under the US terrorist law together with the LTTE some front organizations OF outfit are mentioned as banned organizations.

But the PTGTE is a new front introduced after the killing of Prabhakaran by Selvarasa Padmanathan alias KP before he got caught to the Sri Lankan authorities in Malaysia. He is still in custody in Sri Lanka.

There was no unanimity regarding the acceptance of the leadership of KP and another leader called Nadevan (the tall one ) in Norway was challenging him.

But the vast amount of LTTE wealth was in the hands of KP.

At the time the PTGTE was proposed there was no assurance that the LTTE remnant would give up violence completely and accept democracy.

Though democracy was claimed there had never been a framework or a constitution for any LTTE democracy to function. Prabhakaran’s word was law and the so called LTTE courts worked at the behest of Prabhakaran.

The PTGTE is a ploy by the LTTE to carry on its usual activities of extortion among the Tamil Diaspora and move forward with all its illegal businesses and use the money for the bifurcation of Sri Lanka, LTTE watchers said.

The PTGTE will continue to lobby with governments for the establishment of separate state in the North and East, the website said.
