The External Affairs Ministry has learnt that the statue, of former LTTE Political wing leader Thamilchelvan erected in a French Town, has been removed from the place it was first erected.

“Our Ambassador in Paris briefed the Mayor and members of the Municipal Council of the town of La Courneuve, about the atrocities committed by Thamilchelvan. He further had extensive discussions with the French Foreign Ministry on this matter,” External Affairs Ministry Director General of Public Communication and Spokesperson Bandula Jayasekara told the Daily Mirror.

La Courneuve, reportedly home to a large Tamil population, erected the statue of Thamilchelvan on the 1st of November this year.  (D.S)

    Madihe son Thursday, 16 December 2010 05:19 PM

    this is even more insulting than preventing it being erected.

    Gayan Samarasekara Thursday, 16 December 2010 04:53 AM

    War against terrorism means the war against Muslims for the westerner. Real terrorists become saints, if they are non-Muslims.

    Mohamed Friday, 17 December 2010 05:11 AM

    Let them keep it in Europe and Find a Ealem there as well. Let us to live here peacefully (Sinhalese , Tamils and Muslims).

    adahan Thursday, 16 December 2010 12:03 PM

    It appears France is vulnerable to anything as a chameleon changes its colour.
