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.
