    Its not because of the high COL. These lazy gullible guys have been conned by the human smugglers about they will be afforded a better life as refugees in Australia on the dole.

    Could there be any specific reason why Police Spokesperson Ajith Rohana always quoting ‘Tamils and Muslims were nabbed en route to Australia' instead mentioning 'Sri Lankan'? It's pretty annoying the Daily Mirror taking the stand of Police report which was not independently verified. How many thousand Singhalese 'escaped' to Italy in the same modus operandi? Police and Daily Mirror clearly taking breach the ‘code of fair information flow’ conduct.

    catch those who are involved in this smuggling,who are making millions of rupees.
    SL is famous for catching small sprats and not the big sharks.

    This is the high time for our administrators to do something about the cost of living, earlier it was the poor people who wanted to escape from the grave land but now the middle class, unless you have some connection with the high profile politicians it is indeed hard to survive in Sri Lanka, why our leaders cant get this properly?
