Lalin's Column : Paisley got but so did Velu P and others - Bring in the Clowns

The news, hardly shaking in a country awash in sensationalism, was that Ian Paisley (Jnr) British MP from Northern Ireland and his family that had been hosted by the SL government twice in 2013. At this time, 4 years after the 30 year old terrorist conflict had ended; SL sorely needed support from UK due to the UN allegations of war crimes against the SL armed forces. Apparently Paisley has now been suspended by the UK Parliament as he has not declared to the UK parliament that a foreign government had spent on him over the threshold an MP is allowed.

Vijaya kala opa karana

Government party MP and state minister Vijaykala is the wife of Maheswaran also an UNP MP who was killed in 2008 by the LTTE at a Hindu kovil in Colombo. He gave her a luxurious life with the sacks of money he made shipping essential supplies to Jaffna. What is not as well known is that he was also kept captive by the LTTE for 2 weeks for reneging on protection money. Had the LTTE given him a final notice? Surely Vijayakala must have pined for him after he was killed?
