A brand new BMW purchased through the vehicle permit issued to Tamil Congress MP A. Vinayagamoorthy is believed to have been sent to the Wanni for the use of the LTTE leadership.

The Sunday Times learns that the vehicle permit had been sold to a Tamil businessman who is involved in transportation of goods from Jaffna to Colombo by sea. The permit was sold in exchange for a vehicle and the balance in cash.

It is reported that the LTTE had insisted it be given the BMW claiming that Mr. Vinayargamoorthy was a TNA elected MP and the LTTE is entitled to claim the vehicle. The permit of the vehicle continues to remain in the name of Mr. Vinayagamoorthy. It was not clear whether the businessman had paid the remaining cash although he had provided Mr. Vinayagamoorthy with the vehicle.

Mr. Vinayargamoorthy yesterday declined to make any comment but admitted he had sold his car permit.
