Moves are a foot to celebrate the 20th birthday of Duwaraha, the only daughter Velupillai Prabhakaran, in London. Invitations have gone out to VIPs to attend the function. Only selected invitees will receive the invitations. Hush-hush preparations are going on for this event. Her birthday falls on June 04. Her brother Charles Anthony is expected to participate in the lavish birthday party.

According to an insider information mother Mathivathani has told very clearly that no LTTE leaders either in London or anywhere else shall be invited.


She has made it known that it is her family ceremony and no participation of the outfit’s cadres – how big they are.

"This is going to be a big bash," said a Tamil activist who did not want to be named for obvious reason.

"This is how the money collected from the Tamil Diaspora goes," he added.

"We are asked to sacrifice for our leaders children to have lavish birthday parties. Our people are asked to sacrifice," he added.

A leading Sinhala Londoner said that there is no difference between the Sinhala leadership and the Tamil leadership. He said: "Chandrika's children enjoyed the same benefits. Now she is holidaying in UK and France in splendid flats. From where did she get the money? She unashamedly used state funds to take her children on a holiday to Egypt."

Mathivathani and Velupillai Prabhakaran were married on October 1, 1984 at the Murugan Temple in Thiruporur, Chennai, and South India. The wife's family at first objected to the marriage as Prabakaran was from a lower caste.

It is learnt that Duwaraha is following her higher education in a university in London while her brother studies in Ireland.
