Traitors-Elections- & Pro-LTTE Anti-National Forces By Darmitha-Kotte

A Sri Lankan in Australia

With regard to the above article, I wish to correct one error the author made. Janaka Perera did not wait till he retired to apply for Australian migration.

There is sufficient evidence to believe that he actually did it whilst he was the High Commissioner, through Don Randall MP for Canning. We know Don Randall well and when he mentioned this in at one of our meetings, we were shocked because Janaka was still our HC.

I thought he did that for his children to get virtually free university study. To Janka's credit I must say that whilst he derived some personal benefit, he also did a great job for Sri Lanka whilst he was the HC for Australia. He set up the Sri Lanka friendship group comprised of Australian parliamentarians.

Don Randall headed this group he has repeatedly refuted the pro-LTTE labor MP - John Murphy's condemnation of Sri Lanka in the Australian parliament. Janaka also became close to the then foreign minister Alexander Downer, who steadfastly kept LTTE lobby away from the government departments. Janaka encouraged and got us to work for Don Randall at the Australian Federal elections.

Janaka was also extremely useful to us to channel some of the tsuami funds to non-LTTE controlled areas.If you are interested, it will not be difficult for you to verify the facts about Janka's migration application.
