    We can only imagine how concern the Australians are on the safety of Sri Lankan economical refugees !!! Two security personnel per each passenger and an airfare is paid also by the Aussies !!! Security personnel will also help them with their luggage and personnel items ... what a civilized nation !!!! Here we can't even get two traffic cops for a funeral with clean helmets and polished boots what a lousy country ... that is sri lanka really is !!!.
