    Here in Holland an adopted woman who was sold in Sri Lanka in the nineties as a baby went to court for justice. Because she developped big mental problems because of this criminal trade. But the court turned her down, it was too long ago

    Now where is Sarath Weerasekara who pledged to publish photos of these criminals? Why are you silent ? Are you still waiting for a camera? All these politicians are of the same basket. Full of slogans and promises but no guts for implementing. Total failure. Shame.

    The punishment for the selling of 42 children should be 42 times live imprisonment.
