    Guavera was a rapist and a muderer. Fedel Castro wanted to kill him after he raped a daughter of a polit bureau member. But if you do this you will be unpopular for a long time. So let Americams do the job for him. Castro told Guavera after you get plastic surgery, no one will recognize you. When Guavera went to China, the Chinese told him, one way or the other Castro will get you, you are a dead man. The two woman in the picture, where the Tamil woman is a member of LTTE and the Sinhala woman is a member of breaker away JVP.

    These two women in the photograph has nothing to do with the Sri Lankan embassy. Woman in the right is a niece of Noel Mudalighe. She was flown form Australia by LTTE. She has three names and three passports issued by the Australian government. Tamil woman on the right does not live in France she lives in England. Woman in the middle referred as Guevara’s daughter? Guevara did not have one wife he had three when he was young. This woman is probably the woman he brought to Sri Lanka when he planted the tree.
