"There are things I couldn't ask him about because there was limited time (he's very weak, and didn't raise his head from the pillow during the interview. I lay down on a mattress opposite him, leaning on one arm and holding the microphone with the other). So there are some unanswered questions - how did he get out of prison? How did he come to the UK? What is his relationship to the LTTE ? (he says none)."

Hear Ray's report in PM tonight.
