    Then from where did they get the money to give these smugglers? I need to work at least 10yrs to get this sum of money...

    Next time try to approach the right smuggler then you can reach your final destination

    The number of asylum seekers is proportional to the poor state of the economy. Do not need a degree is nuclear physics to understand this equation.

    Doesn't any one of them ever identify the people who took their hard earned money to pay for the abortive trip?

    Whatever the 'Masters' say; the unprecedented (not so even during the 30 yr war) 2/3 boat loads risking their lives to escape every week is a testimony to the horrors Sri Lankans endure in this once resplendent isle.

    Knowing the truth, still there are media popularity hungers are defending the illegal boat people arrival in Sri Lanka.

    Niromi de Soyza is one of the ex-LTTE , is gaining the popularity to sell her book with full of twisted stories.

    Showing one face to the LTTE diaspora and another face to the LTTE in Australia.

    Prof Michael and Dr.Sarvananthan brought to the light !

    Selling off all assets/belongings may be, as they won't need them. The question is: what drives them to such extremes? - Economic reasons is only a fraction of the bigger picture.
