Sir:
You said, “Harper stops short of defending Paranchothy saying only his government has banned the Tigers. But Soudas is unequivocal that Gavan Paranchothy has no ties to the Tigers.”
 
I don’t buy that explanation, not even for a bag of toffee. Gavan Paranchothy is the Conservative  candidate for the Scarborough Southwest riding.  Gavan Paranchothy  was until recently  Ragavan Paranchothy, who was the Canadian that KP, the Tamil Tiger Selvarajah Pathmanathan was speaking  to on the phone when he was picked up from a Kauala Lumpur hotel and whisked back to Sri Lanka and is now under  the custody of the Sri Lankan Government.  KP ran the Tamil Tiger arms and narcotics smuggling operations and was the international arms dealer providing arms for the Eelam War and ace racketeer, and was the Head of  the Tamil Tiger chief’s International Relations Department,  who INTERPOL was after.
 
Ragavan Paranchothy according to reports hosted broadcasts on Tamil Vision International Television and Canadian Multicultural Radio in Toronto and just last November hosted a televised tribute to the Tamil Tigers that Canada banned in 2006.
 
For the Conservative to now say that he has no ties to the Tigers is a far cry which I don’t buy.   This is how the cookie crumbles when the Conservatives started to flirt with the Tamil Tiger sympathisers wanting the Tamil votes to topple in Liberals from their ridings in the GTA.   Unfortunately, the Conservatives are now caught in a web of deceit which they cannot wriggle out of.  This is unfortunate as I saw it coming.
