THIS IS EXACTLY THE CHINESE DO COME TO OUR COUNTRY AND GET INVOLVED ON ALL ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES. JUST IMAGINE WHEN THE CHINESE ARE RECRUITED FOR THE HAMBANTHOTA PORT WORK, THERE WILL BE ENOUGH WORK FOR THE LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS AND ALSO THE LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS WILL BE INVOLVED IN TAKING BRIBES FROM THESE CHINESE. CORRUPTION COULD INCREASE INTO THREEFOLD. WE NEED TO CLEAN UP AND CHECK ALL CHINESE IMMIGRANTS VERY CAREFULLY. THE LAW ENFORCEMENT SHOULD BE CARRIED OUT STRICTLY OTHERWISE THE LOCAL POPULATION WILL GO BEHIND MONEY FROM THE CHINESE.

I think these Indians and Chinese honestly believe that Sri Lanka is theirs. That's why they are not worried about all these illegal things. Oh, yes, it is reasonal if they think so. After all, part of Sri Lanka is theirs, isn't it?
