Does the UK actually have a door policy?

Say hello to Colonel Karuna Amman, known to his nearest and dearest as Vinayagamoorthi Muralitharan, leader of a faction that broke away from the Tamil separatist group LTTE in Sri Lanka.

The Hindustan Times reports on this character under the headline "Karuna seeks political asylum in UK".

Now read on......

"Karuna...was accused by the UN...of indulging in large-scale extortion and recruitment of kids for his armed group in the Tamil-speaking Eastern districts of Batticaloa and Amparai. And the Sri Lankan government was accused of being "complicit" in his crimes. Isolated and unwanted, Karuna fled Sri Lanka recently, and was reportedly living in the UK". Source

And there's more: "Colonel Karuna was the LTTE head of the Eastern province in 1990, when between 400 to 600 unarmed police officers who surrendered to the group were consequently massacred. When Colonel Karuna was part of the LTTE, he was also implicated in the massacre of Muslims... RSF (Reporters Without Borders), has accused him of muzzling local journalists by forming death squads to silence those who oppose his point of view.

His armed group has been accused by human rights groups in the increasing involuntary disappearances of civilians in the Jaffna peninsula. They have been accused of taking part in death squad activity against civilians. They are also accused of child soldier recruitment by UNICEF, Human Rights Watch, and others. Additionally, a report by the United States Department of State claims that Karuna's group "was believed also to have killed 20 civilians."

I expect "Customs and Immigration" rolled out the red carpet.
