The BBC has been accused of censoring a discussion with the leader of the Frontline Socialist Party, Sri Lanka.



The public broadcaster BBC World Service has invited Premakumar Gunaratnam, a former JVP leader and political activist in Sri Lanka who later became the leader of the Frontline Socialist Party, on October 23rd for an interview.

The recorded on camera interview was not broadcast and the BBC is still keeping its silence and is yet to give a clarification on this issue.

    This guy became a refugee in Australia under a false name. He must have flushed the passport at the Airport Lavatory and taken another identity.

    His birth identity is listed as missing in Ceylon. Everyone thinks his previous life was abducted in a “white van”.

    Is Premakumar Gunaratnam instigating another round of terror this time in the name of liberating “workers of the world” from the clutches of capitalism, Bonapartism, feudalism, imperialism, Marxism, Maoism, … and from himself?

    People should have the right to ridicule him, therefore BBC should not sensor his interview.
