leave a comment »

Former UNP MP Ali Zahir Maulana, who brought Minister Vinayagamurthy Muralitharan alias Karuna Amman in a secret manner to Colombo in 2004 following his defection from the LTTE, is expected to arrive in the country soon.

Mr. Maulana came increasingly under threat from the LTTE as a result of his facilitation of Mr. Muralitharan who was the organization’s eastern commander. After the fall of the UNP government at the 2004 general election, Mr. Maulana switched allegiance to the UPFA.

After the 2005 Presidential Election, President Rajapaksa posted him to the Sri Lankan Embassy in Washington.
