In a message commemorating the massacre of Tamil civilians in July 1983, Mr. Vusuvanathan Rudrakumaran, Prime Minister of the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) called to redouble the efforts to achieve an independent and sovereign country of Tamil Eelam in the Island of Sri Lanka.

"Thousands of Tamil civilians were massacred, several Tamil women were gang raped and over fifty Tamil political prisoners were killed in July 1983, simply because they all belong to the Tamil ethnic community," said the Prime Minister.

The massacre of tens of thousands of Tamil civilians in the final months of the war that ended in 2009 is a continuation of eradicating the Tamil community" said the TGTE Prime Minister.

"These series of mass killings re confirms the need to redouble the efforts to achieve an independent and sovereign country of Tamil Eelam," he continued.

TGTE held internationally supervised elections in 12 countries to elect Members of Parliament (MPs).
