What would be the situation of a Burgher married to a Sinhalese in the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna? [LKA4189]

No information specific to Burghers married to Sinhalese who are members of the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) is currently available to the IRBDC in Ottawa. Please note, however, that the JVP is reportedly not very strong in the Sinhala Christian areas [ Matthews B. "The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna and the Politics of the Underground in Sri Lanka", Round Table, no. 312, July 1989, p. 428; this article is already attached to your information request LKA4184 of 9 February 1990.]. Most Burghers are Christians and speak English, whereas the JVP insists on the strength of their Sinhalese Buddhist culture.
