Following reports published in different newspapers regarding the issuance in France of stamps bearing pictures and symbols of the LTTE, the Embassy of France in Sri Lanka wishes to inform the media and the Sri Lankan public that no such stamp is part of the official philatelist programme of France, neither on sale in the French post offices. The French Postal services, “La Poste”, offers an online service through which customers can order limited quantities of personalised stamps under their responsibility and under specific conditions.  It appears that individuals have used this service to order the above mentioned stamps.
 
 “La Poste” recognised that they failed to detect that the conditions had not been met and that some of these stamps have been printed by mistake.
 
Having been informed by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs that LTTE is a movement which has been listed since 2006 as a terrorist organisation by the European Union, “La Poste assures  that no such stamp will be printed further.

Since 1991, le “Groupe La Poste”, of which French postal services are a part, is an independent public, industrial and commercial institution. (Source: Embassy of France in Sri Lanka)

    How about printing Hitlor stamps and send to France and then say it was a mistake!

    Well it is very easy to say it was a mistake, but this is called hoodwinking. To print stamps, first the samples needs to be approved and evaluated by the responsible authorities, hence nobody in the approval board could say that they were not aware about the picture therein. It is a combined effort by some authorities and the Tamil Terrorist supporters or the supporters must have bribed the higher-ups heavily to get this done.
