SL hands 37 Chinese fishermen to embassy

E-mail Print
Sri Lanka handed over 37 Chinese fishermen to their embassy on Tuesday, officials said, two days after the Sri Lankan navy arrested them for fishing without permission in Sri Lankan waters, Reuters reported.

The fishermen were arrested aboard two trawlers off the east coast town of Batticaloa on Sunday, along with two Sri Lankan agents.

"The fault is not with the (Chinese) crew. The case is against the (Sri Lankan) owner now," Navy spokesman Kosala Warnakulasuriya told Reuters. "We have handed over the Chinese crew to officials from the Chinese embassy," he said.

What is the matter with you guys? Yes MR family is in power and they need to control and safeguard the country in whatever way possible. Yes Sri Lanka is holding its head up internationally without being subjected to an 'Arab Spring' because of China and Russia, much to the disappointment of the opposition, no doubt, who appears to be able to set the country ablaze like in Egypt, Libya etc., just to come to power. Have some consideration to gratitude man.

Anyone could see that the Sri Lankan owner thing is a good ploy to poach in our waters. The 'owner' was probably paid a fortune to play his part.

The fault lies not with the Sri Lankans unless one of them was the Captain of the ship. The Captain is finally responsible for the movement of the ship and its purpose. Not getting the crew released through a court order, shows to what level this regime has become puppets.

It seems that the government is following different polices over the fishermen who violate the international maritime law. when it comes to the South Indian fishermen it does not hesitate to take action according to law.

China to Sri Lanka..."Hand them over now." Also they would have reminded the 1989 incident in their country where thousands of Chinese were massacred.
"So you Sri lankan's are peanuts to us. "

you cant go on just because they were in power when war was won and they are in power now, go all out and break the law of the country and violate all norms. we did not vote a leader to violate country law but to govern it by respecting all people law and the constitution.

Make a pact with china for fishing. Then our fisherman can go to yellow sea and they can come to Indian ocean and buy fish from Chinese fisherman to saman Factories and for Umbalkada and dry fish.
