Basically, KP has absolved himself of being the person who, after the arrest, gave info to the SL government.

Eelamist supporters in Australia moved in and began a letter writing campaign, addressing Amnesty International, and claiming that Indika Mendis was tortured in prison. even though these men are not Tamils.

However, when ever a high-profile Sri Lankan political visitor arrives in Britain, Jonathan Miller, supported by Eelamist groups in Britain, has rushed in to re-broadcast this video in the hope of embarrassing the Sri Lankan government. The video was most recently resurrected in November 2010 when President Rajapaksa was visiting UK.
