Sri Lanka's Supreme Court is set to decide the fate of a British Tamil imprisoned five years ago.
He has never been charged with a crime but has nonetheless remained in a Colombo jail, held on suspicion of supplying Tamil Tiger (LTTE) militants with military equipment. The civil war wrecking the country has since ended, but Visvallingam Gobithas’ nightmare continues. His lawyers, meanwhile, are doing everything they can think of to secure his release.
