The group of 31 Myanmar Nationals, who were detained at a house of UNHRC in Mount Lavinia, had been taken into the Police custody for their protection, Police Spokesman SP Ruwan Gunasekara said.

He said the refugees who were apprehended by the Sri Lanka Coast Guard officials in April this year were initially detained at the Mirihana Detention Centre.

Later, they were handed over to the UNHRC and the UNHRC officials had detained them at a house in Mount Lavinia.

SP Gunasekara said the refugees arrived from Myanmar were taken into the custody for their protection after a group of monks protested against their stay in the country.

Sri Lanka Coast Guard craft on routine patrol in the Northern waters apprehended the fishing boat transferring the 30 refugees including 16 children, 7 women and 7 men in Sri Lankan waters, off the coast of Kankesanthurai on April 30.(Darshana Sanjeewa)

    "Buddhist monks protesting" they are nowhere close to Buddhism, they are just filthy devils discrediting the great and compassionate Lord Buddha. We do not have one single hero in this country who can lynch these priests to a lamp post in the name of true Buddhism.

    Where were u all these time? All problems started by these Rohingy Refugese in Mynmar. If some one hit you, are you just waiti and see?

    You are a real buffalo! From where the hell you got this racist information!

    johan Tuesday, 26 September 2017 01:57 PM

    We cant understand the behaviours of the monks who are following Buddha's teaching.The ministry of Buddha Sasana must take steps educate the present and future monks.

    ROSHAN Tuesday, 26 September 2017 04:44 PM

    We can't understand behavior of so called Rohingys in Mynmar?

    West are always waging a story of human rights. Please repatriate the group to the place of origin or to Europe soil ASAP.

    BuffaloaCitizen Tuesday, 26 September 2017 04:31 PM

    Yes lets show them that we are a country of cowards, ready to kill the weaker but not ready to help when in need.

    ranjit demel Tuesday, 26 September 2017 05:07 PM

    why not to saudi arabia or the emmirates

    tarzan Tuesday, 26 September 2017 05:52 PM

    wooler Tuesday, 26 September 2017 05:52 PM

    I feel for these refugees but I have to agree with the monks.giving them refuge is going to be the start of a flood of refugees once they know that Sri Lanka is a safe haven. We need to nip this in the bud.

    BuffaloaCitizen Tuesday, 26 September 2017 04:28 PM

    Will you say this same thing if you were one of them?

    Roshan Tuesday, 26 September 2017 04:46 PM

    Wel said

    Dee Tuesday, 26 September 2017 04:23 PM

    The day same happens to us, hope even afgans or Somalians won't accept us.

    Sharon Tuesday, 26 September 2017 04:43 PM

    Ultimately they are humans like you and I. Treat them well and deport them to where they belong to in a humane manner. Sad, we can't keep them here thinking about 20 years ahead...

    lokka Tuesday, 26 September 2017 04:53 PM

    Why they can't go nearest country Pakistan.

    S.P.RAMKUMAR Tuesday, 26 September 2017 05:05 PM

    This innocent vulnerable Minorities Rohingyas does not have any place to go. Why did our Ven. Monks take violent on their hands. Please allow them to stay until they go to their country.

    Ptah Imhotep Tuesday, 26 September 2017 05:38 PM

    That BuffaloaCitizen is aptly named.. He is a really a buffalo.Probably even an insult to the Buffalo species -

    Aunty Tuesday, 26 September 2017 05:53 PM

    This Roshan goon does not seem to know world affairs.These people are refugees because of violence against them in Myanmar. Besides what kind of a human are you? you are openly acknowledging that abuse/attack of another human is correct. gosh i sometimes wish there will be some instant karma justice for guys like you. such a poor excuse of a human!

    wooler Tuesday, 26 September 2017 05:55 PM

    Aren't we the only nation of where true Buddhism exists.. yet is this the way we react to housing of just 30 refugees out of which 16 are kinds, under UNHCR care. SHAME.

    hindu Tuesday, 26 September 2017 05:58 PM

    Follow the hindusm, they are only people who are always very calm except modi

    Myanmar refugees or any other country in the world's refugees we doesn't have to take . In our country we have enough and enough problems and matters to solve . This an unnecessary and more headaches we are taking , their are many other countries in the world that accepts refugees , because they are developed and they need people to run their countries . Our people are protesting for other things ,first they should protests against this to send back all the illegally or legally entered as refugees . Our people are suffering lacks of facilities and and many other needs , with out filling those and trying to settle other countries matters , Are these rulers and leaders who rules the country is so stupid and dumb . Must not allow any body else other than our country's nationalities majority Sinhalese, Tamils , Muslims , Malays and burgers . Any other person can come as a tourist with travel visas to see and travel the country .

    Humanitarian Wednesday, 27 September 2017 04:24 AM

    Brothers they came to Sri Lanka as refugees ....lets treat them as refugees while taking security measures protect security of the country . Daham has taught us many lessons lest follow

    Abex Wednesday, 27 September 2017 10:24 AM

    Is this kind of behaviour buddhidm teaches?

    Peace Wednesday, 27 September 2017 05:10 PM

    For a short stay in this world, we fight against ourselves for what? Let peace prevail everywhere.

    Sambo Friday, 29 September 2017 07:55 PM

    Some monks are root cause of the animosity in this country
