Satellite operator Intelsat has blocked unauthorised use of its Intelsat 12 satellite by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, who the US, Canada and Europe consider a terrorist organisation.
Intelsat shut down the NTT (National Television of Tamil Eelam) TV and radio frequency being used on the 21st and 22nd of April, and in a recent press report stated that it "does not tolerate terrorists or others operating illegally on its satellites."
Tamil Tigers TV still active on Intelsat
Saturday, April 28th, 2007
Despite the widely-reported statement by Intelsat that it has switched off National Television of Tamil Eelam from its satellite, we received a report stating that the channel was, in fact, still being seen on the Intelsat12 satellite (45°E) as of 26 April.
Update 29 April: D Prabakaran in India says “Since, I am living in India, I checked Indian beam only. Just a few seconds back, they start morning transmission too.” So the station is still active. Mr Prabakaran sent us the screenshots below.
