The government should give priority to Sri Lankan expatriates who wish to return to the country rather than focusing on bringing down COVID-19 patients from Seychelles for treatment, former opposition leader Sajith Premadasa said yesterday.  

“Many Sri Lankans in the Middle East and other countries are suffering since the outbreak of COVID-19. They repeatedly plead the government to bring them back to Sri Lanka. The government does not seem to be responding to this call,” he said.
