    This is atrocious! What did the Australian Senator do to get this treatment? We will have reciprocal treatment from the Australian Government, for sure.

    Looks like the government is really shy of foreigners. Guilt is the name of the word.

    Off-course! If any Sri Lankan violates Australian Immigration laws they will have to face the consequences. I expect nothing less from other countries.

    Another case of selective application of law and order in the country that displayed before the very eyes of the world. Stupidity at its best.

    SL is now branded a rogue under developed country state run by a pack of thugs.

    Immigration authorities have added fuel to the fire by doing what they did. This Senators statement is headlines in Australia now. She is a well known one sided sympathiser of the LTTE and their supporters and many here in Australia have been trying hard to counter her misinformation campaign here. Now she has been given a reason on a silver platter to say SL is against freedom and democracy and people are living in fear. What SL immigration has done is crass stupidity.

    What !!! , violating Immigration law of any country is violating International laws. That's the right thing to do regardless of their motives.

    I wonder why US, UK, EU and other countries "shy" about foreigners and deport them back to their countries.
