The Sunday Leader has referred in two separate articles to my mention of a note given me at the British High Commission, written by two separate peoplewho have somewhat different ideas of my conversation with Federica Jansz, the editor. Both indicated that I could not remember when I got the note, which is correct, but I also told Federica that I would check my diary when I got back home and find out. I have now done so, and I find that it was on January 12th 2009, just four days after the murder of Lasantha Wickramatunga. I was therefore right in connecting the incident to the murder, though of course the British did not claim they had any hard evidence about this.
