How come MP Rathika meets banned LTTE leaders in Tamil Nadu after her so called ordeal in Sri Lanka?

More revelations of MP Rathika Sitsabaiesan’s visit to Sri Lanka and Tamilnadu, South India have now surfaced.  She claimed that her private visit to Sri Lanka after some 27 years was to meet with relatives and see her former home in Jaffna and engage in some charitable work just before the March 2014 UNHRC sessions in Geneva.  Her cousin I believe was Mrs. Ananthi Sasitharan who was elected as an MP of the Northern Provincial Council, whose husband was a key leader of the Tamil Tiger terrorists holding the position of political head of the eastern region.  He was responsible for recruiting children to the LTTE’s military wing to be brainwashed to becoming a storm trooper or suicide bomber. Her cousin Mrs. Ananthi Sasitharan while previously working in the Government Secretariat in Killinochchi drawing a salary from the Sri Lankan government (whose husband was a key member of the LTTE at the time), is said to have abused her authority and misused a government vehicle to transport material to a LTTE military camp. She had also met with Catholic clergy and Tamil National Alliance leaders  (proxy party of the LTTE) who are supporters of the LTTE on her private visit to Sri Lanka, when the authorities cautioned her against engaging in activities of a political nature when visiting the country as a tourist.  At this stage, she created a political rumpus by falsely claiming that she was being kept under house arrest in Sri Lanka, and that people on motorbikes were following her.  Her visit was intended to instigate pro_LTTE groups in Sri Lanka to create a public outcry about lack of freedom and mistreatment by the authorities to draw the attention of the UNHRC and the international community in the 2-3 months preceding the UNHRC sessions scheduled to be held in March 2014.    

She leaves Sri Lanka by making bogus allegations and then proceeds to meet with more members of her extended Tamil Tiger family in Tamilnadu, South India.  Some of those seen in the enclosed photos are leading members of the pro-Tamil Tiger separatist group in Tamilnadu, who have previously been deported from Canada or banned from entering the country.  The second photo number 1926713-1-00 shows a LTTE leader who displays a picture of himself with the infamous TAMIL TIGER leader.

I wonder if the NDP leader, Hon. Thomas Mulcair, and the NDP’s Foreign Affairs Critic, MP Paul Dewar, were aware of the meetings planned by their caucus colleague, MP Rathika Sitsabaiesan, and if they had in fact encouraged her in her mission to stir up anti-Sri Lanka sentiments on her visits to Sri Lanka and Tamilnadu?  Did Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hon. John Baird, and the Hon. Lynne Yelich have any inkling of the real purpose of her visit and the bogus claim of being held under house arrest in Sri Lanka causing them to comment adversely on Sri Lanka at the time?
