Dear Mrs Furuhovde,

We learn with deep regret and sorrow of the passing away of Major General Furuhovde, former Head of Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission, in Norway, yesterday.

General Furuhovde twice undertook the most difficult task of the Head of Mission in Sri Lanka during turbulent times, and made an outstanding contribution to the establishment of peace and stability in the war torn Tamil homeland. With extra-ordinary skill and leadership he guided the monitoring mission in overseeing peace and helped to strengthen and consolidate the truce agreement.

With passionate commitment to peace General Furuhovde performed his task with stunning efficiency, adhering to the noble principles of objective neutrality and social justice. His exemplary service will always be appreciated with gratitude. On behalf of the people of Tamil Eelam, I express my heartfelt condolences to you and your family.

Yours sincerely,

Velupillai Pirapaharan
Leader
Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam
