Pro-LTTE hunger striker tucks into Big Macs

The Daily Mail, UK reported that during weeks of protest in London early this year Parameswaran Subramaniyan lay in a tent outside the Houses of Parliament as Tamils protested about the alleged plight of relatives under attack in Sri Lanka.

At one stage, his supporters claimed he was 'critically weak'.


Parameswaran Subramaniyan tucked into Big Macs

Scotland Yard surveillance teams using specialist monitoring equipment had watched in disbelief as he tucked into the clandestine deliveries.

Scotland Yard made no official comment but senior sources said police decided against dragging the bogus hunger striker out of his tent for fear it would start a riot, the Daily Mail said.

Excerpts of the article published in the Daily Mail yesterday. He was the hunger striker at the centre of one of the longest-running demonstrations ever mounted in Britain. For weeks Parameswaran Subramaniyan lay in a tent outside the Houses of Parliament as Tamils protested about the plight of relatives under attack in Sri Lanka.

At one stage, his supporters claimed he was 'critically weak'. The protest finally ended in June, but two revelations put it back in the spotlight yesterday.

First, police said it had left them with a pounds 7.1 million overtime bill. Then it emerged that Subramaniyan, 28, had eased his ordeal by secretly eating McDonald's burgers.

Scotland Yard surveillance teams using specialist monitoring equipment had watched in disbelief as he tucked into the clandestine deliveries.

A police insider said: "In view of the overtime bill, this has got to be most expensive Big Mac ever."

Scotland Yard made no official comment but senior sources said police decided against dragging the bogus hunger striker out of his tent for fear it would start a riot.
