Protests outside the Embassy will be of no use. The only way to seek her release is to send a special emmisary of President Rajapakse to meet the Saudi King in person and request for a pardon. I can see only three individuals who can accomplish this task. Mr. M.H Mohamed, Mr. Rauff Hakeem or Mr. Alavi Mowlana.

What has happened to this country? For everything govt. is responsible. Rizna an underaged girl had migrated to Saudi in an improper manner. It was the great responsibility of her parents for this issue. Ranjan Ramanayake may not have any matters of public importance for the imporovements of the society with development.
