    This just goes to show how pathetic border controls are in SL.
    Anyone can come and claim that their passport was lost and obtain a Sri Lankan Passport!

    Some agents remain dormant until their services are required then they will surface. Till then they have to remain low-profile.

    Now, I think the matter has come to light. Earlier two terrorist suspects were arrested one in India and the other in Malysia all two had sri lankan links. They also had Muslem names like the one which has now been caught. I think India is involved in a secret operation to tarnish the relation between Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

    Wimalveerawansa was so true then.

    I smell something now. Several cuprits were surfaced/or planted gradually every corner with certain hidden agenda. Those who plot with evil intention - should remember that they will certainly go in astray.

    The authorities should go deeper because there is something fishy with his travel to the Mid East.
