Prabhakaran and Interpol
Thank you for publishing Mr. H. M. G. B. Kotakadeniya’s letter to the editor (The Island 28/11) along with the arrest warrant on Prabhakaran by Interpol. It is a piece of writing that could have appeared under the caption "Laugh a while!".
The author is either suffering from senility of old age or
under the unwholesome influence of Sihala Urumaya which he joined on
retirement. For, he seems to forget the fact that while he was in service as
the senior D.I.G. he had failed to implement the arrest warrant from 1994,
the date from which Interpol wanted Mr. Prabhakaran. The dereliction of
duty, probably due to mortal fear of Mr. Prabhakaran, is a grave offence in
a public servant and action is liable to be initiated for this serious
omission even now after his retirement.
