The refugees had left Sri Lanka on a boat on August 31, 2010 to reach Australia’s remote Christmas Island.

    This is more than plot to tarnish SL by bogus asylum seekers
    At this going rate Tamils to better pastures there won`t be any Tamils left in SL to claim homeland. except Dr Jayalth Jayawardena.

    So we cannot brag about peace and reconciliation!

    A world citizen Thursday, 21 October 2010 04:47 AM

    The Land doesn't belong to the people who lived, live or will live, It belongs to the creator, so why do we have restrictions on people traveling or even choosing to live anywhere they like? What is freedom of movement? a basic human right, YET do all countries practice this? NO

    A world without borders
