MP Jeyaraj Fernandopulle, Chief Government Whip making a statement in Parliament has said that appointing a parliamentary Select Committee to investigate claims of monetary transactions between the Rajapaksa camp and the LTTE will depend on the statement LTTE leader Prabhakaran says regarding this.
If, Prabhakaran also makes this allegation then the government would be willing to appoint a Select Committee, according to Fernandopulle.
This is quite an interesting development on many spheres. Firstly, we have a Sri Lankan lawmaker disregarding statements from a fellow lawmaker in the same assembly, and also his party for added punch. He would rather take the word of Prabhakaran, it seems.
Great, now we can all put our feet up and wait until Prabhakaran comes strolling down to the 4th floor of the CID to make a statement. While we're at it, let's discuss this other business of Eelam over a cup of tea and a Marie biscuit, shall we?
I wonder, in keeping with this line of thinking, whether Prabhakaran has made any statement about Tiran Alles' involvement for him to be arrested. What about the media personnel who were arrested with allegations of LTTE connections? The infamous ali-koti givisuma then?
