Mr Vijay Nambiar, an Indian diplomat, who is  alleged of responsibility  in the  white-flag surrender, is the brother of Lt. Gen. (Retd) Satish Nambiar, who was earlier invited by the SL government during the CFA to report on the military High Security Zones in the North and East. According to the accounts of the late veteran war correspondent Marie Colvin, Mr Nambiar had an assurance from the Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa that LTTE’s Political Head  Mr Nadesan would be safe in surrendering to the Sri Lanka Army carrying a white flag. Although Mr Nambiar was supposed to witness to the surrender in person, he had concluded that it was not necessary for him to witness the episode as he had SL president’s assurance.
