Canada bound Lankans caught in Benin

At least 148 Sri Lankans arrived today after they were deported from the Republic of Benin, Africa when they were arrested attempting to migrate illegally.

The Lankans had gathered in Benin through various routes and intended to migrate to Canada, initial reports suggested.

The Canadian government, Sri Lankan embassy and International Organization for Migration (IOM) were instrumental in deporting the Sri Lankans back to the country. (Deepa Adhikari)

    everybody knows who the human traffickers are
    how come the authorities pretend not to know
    there is no boat to canada
    this is all about grabbing money
    take them to another corrupt third world country
    take the money and tip them off
    then there is more money grabbing
    to get them released when they arrive back in sri-lanka
    rumour is this is done by some very influential people in this government
    or maybe they are using the name of certain officials in the government
    for this fraudulent purpose
    but surely the immigration at the airport is involved
