    The dole and benefits payed in Australia for refugees and unemployed are going to be attractive for the families without any income in Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka provide free university education and can't afford to provide unemployment benefits. Australia do not provide free uni education and students have to pay back big loan once they start to earn. A new report released yesterday shows half of Australian cannot save because of rising living cost. Grass looks greener on other side always. Lankans need to be better informed.

    SL Govt need to take some constructive steps to tackle this issue, rather than merely arresting these people. People need to be educated on the risks of getting on to a boat thinking Australia is heaven as some Sri Lankan TV channels advertise.

    These bogus refugees are now going to Nauru to enjoy free food, drinks, music, dancing and internet and then come back in real comfort in an airplane. What a picnic, indeed

    They should make the country "habitable" instead of arresting them!!!
