From Sunday Morning, 8:40 am on 8 February 2015

These days he works as a broadcaster, advocate and writer on refugee issues in Australia and as a convenor with the Tamil Refugee Council. He is the author of Sri Lanka's Secrets: How The Rajapaksa Regime Gets Away With Murder, published by Monash University Publishing.
