Another boatload of 61 would-be asylum seekers illegally heading to Australia was taken into the Navy custody last night in the eastern seas, sources said

Two days ago, a group of 109 people with their fishing trawler were nabbed by the Navy in the eastern seas.

On the same day another group of 22 people were also arrested for preparing to leave the country illegally at Chilaw in the west coast.

Sri Lankan authorities last week announced that a three tier programme to curb illegal immigration had been implemented. (AA)
