Sri Lanka protest against Tamilchelven’s Statue PDF Print E-mail
The Sri Lanka embassy in France is planning to take diplomatic measures against the proposed construction of a statue of LTTE political wing leader Tamilchelvan who was killed by an air force attack.

The embassy is also planning to start a special discussion in this regard with the French govt.

There have been reports even in French media about some pro Tamil factions in France trying to put up a statue of Tamilchelvan and the Sri Lanka embassy sources said that they are highly concerned about these reports and they consider it their duty to prevent it from happening.

A spokesman of the Ministry said that the Sri Lankan ambassador in France Mr. Lionel Fernando has already conveyed the protest of the Sri Lankan govt in this regard to the French govt and the Foreign Ministry is also taking steps to bring this issue to the notice of the French ambassador in Colombo. The foreign ministry learnt of this effort by the Tiger sympathizers in France last week.
