Prapa was the president of the Eelam Tamil Association of British Columbia in the 1990s, and collected more than $60,000 from federal grants, and much more from the Tamil Diaspora. He has been charged, since the LTTE was declared a Terrorist organization in Canada (in 2006). He has been charged with soliciting funds for the WTM and other LTTE fronts. “The WTM is an integral part of the LTTE strategy to raise funds for re-armament and to gain legitimacy as the sole representative of the Tamil people in the international community,” the RCMP alleged in a court filing. But no charges had been laid until Thambithurai was arrested in March 2008. He is the first to be charged under the anti-terrorism laws of Canada.

Retired former Attorney General (AG) of Sri Lanka, now living in Australia. He was in Oslo for the planned last set of talks (albeit it never occurred) to represent LTTE, and assisted the Tigers in drafting the ISGA (Interim self-government agreement). Many have pointed out that he is an example proving that Tamils were, and are able to reach high positions in Sri Lanka. So also Narapalasingham, and the list of distinguished Tamils show cased by the “TamilNation” (see at the bottom of this list)

It is trying to be a “third force” in Tamil Nadu. Originally a caste based North Tamil Nadu Vanniyar political party, generally supports AIADMK now, although it supported the DMK till 2006, and the Congress (Tiwari component) in the 1990s. Its current attitude to Sri Lanka and the LTTE follows that of the AIADMK, although even more more opportunist (PMK founder, Dr S. Ramadoss has been consistently an admirer of Prabhakaran). see PMK’s Tamil Nadu vote base in 2009

One time “National spokesperson”, Canadian Tamil congress and LTTE front man based in Toronto. He takes part in TV and radio debates, and in defending/advocating Eelamist politics. During the 2009 April-May pro-Prabhakaran protests, Poopalapillai was very active. The “Hill times” (Ottawa) reported that” “David Poopalapillai, a spokesperson for the Canadian Tamil Congress, said over the past weeks his group has met with Conservative MPs Peter Kent, Paul Calandra (Oak Ridges-Markham, Ont.), James Lunney (Nanaimo-Alberni, B.C.), Lois Brown (Newmarket-Aurora, Ont.), Bloc MP Jean Dorion (Longueuil-Pierre-Boucher, Que.), Liberal MPs Albina Guarnieri (Mississauga East-Cooksville, Ont.), Rob Oliphant (Don Valley West, Ont.), Kirsty Duncan (Etobicoke North, Ont.), Borys Wrzesnewskyj (Etobicoke Centre, Ont.) and Alan Tonks (York South-Weston, Ont.) among others. Mr. Poopalapillai said the protests on Parliament Hill attracted the attention and concern of Canadians, but did not attract the government’s.”

Eelamist journalist. This writer’s postings contain statements of the form the Rajapakse government intensified its war against the LTTE in which thousands of civilians were killed and maimed, or the security forces continue to hold at least 11,700 young Tamil men and women indefinitely without charge as “terrorist suspects”. Given the 300,000 IDPs freed from the clutches of the LTTE, 11,700/300,000 is 0.039, a very small fraction, and the claim that the govt. hopes to “indefinitely hold” is unsubstantiated. The US and Britain held their war captives without trial for over five to 10 years, and the delays in the court system in Sri Lanka are such that a six to one year delay is typical of the speed of the Attorney General’s dept. This should not be attributed to deliberate policy by the govt, without further evidence.

He is the son of G. G. Ponnambalam who died in Malaya in 1977, and Kumar has retained the father’s initials, and sometimes wrote articles signed as such. He has a son, Gajan G. Ponnambalam whose initials are also G. G. (Ponnambalam). Gajan is a member of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) which was an LTTE-proxy party. Kumar himself was a TNA member of parliament. He was assassinated under mysterious circumstances discussed in Victor Ivan’s book (“Chavura Raejina”). He was made a posthumous “Maamanthar” by Prabhakaran. Kumar Ponnambalam clamored extensively regarding “Sinhala oppression of Tamils, mass graves, discrimination and how the Government is allegedly killing Tamils and bombing them”. Kumar regarded other democratic Tamil parties as “quislings” and demanded separation, but he would agree to “Thimpu”. He claimed Sinhalese colonization of Tamil homelands and ethnic cleansing. He claimed that ethnic cleansing had begun around 1920, before independence, under the British. Such claims had been made by G.G.Ponnambalam in front of the Soulbury commission and rejected. Kumar claimed that “Thamil Eelam” had existed in ancient Sri Lanka”. He defended the silence of the Tamils and their lack of condemnation of the act when Neelan Thiruchelvam (Neelakandan Thiruchelvam) was assassinated (on 29th July 1999).
