    Please excuse our super intelligent politicians

    They are just too busy building towers and art galleries, travelling around the globe, etc., and don't have the time to look into the reason why Sri Lankans are abandoning Sri Lanka enmasse.

    Might as well make it legal to leave SL by boat, let Australia do what ever they want at that end!!!

    samosa Friday, 06 July 2012 05:14 AM

    no more Italy, Australia is the next destination... These crazy people never understand the life Christmas, but just for the name of Australia, fleeing at any cost.

    Poor fellows, from frying pan to the fire!

    simple mind Friday, 06 July 2012 05:32 AM

    there is no porpose in blaming these people for what they are doing. Make the country safe and condusive for every citizen to live peacefully and create economic development. Do citizens from the developed countries migrate illegally?

    Danny Friday, 06 July 2012 05:50 AM

    Raja gathiya Friday, 06 July 2012 05:46 AM

    it seems boats are leaving more often than flights to Australia.

    the meaning of tamil word WAKARAI - the cityname is referred to that come to the shore but unfortunately they could not be on shore of next side

    Sapumal Bandara Friday, 06 July 2012 06:48 AM

    It is anybody's and everybody's dream to migrate. Let's be realistic. That's the Asian Culture.

    Unfortunately these innocent gullible people fall prey to these human smuggling vultures.

    The government should not allow these vultures to thrive on human misery.

    It seems your mind is too simple to understand

    Anderson Friday, 06 July 2012 08:03 AM

    This is an international human smuggling scam... This has been going on for ages.... creating income for terrorist organizations such as LTTE and others. The people do pay for the voyage and once they get asylum status they keep on paying for the network. This is what happens now in Canada, Australia, Switzerland etc. This is probably how many tamils have managed to settle themselves in those countries and finance terrorists and their network.

    May be those people just want to go whale watching. What's wrong with that?

    Godagampala Rohana Friday, 06 July 2012 04:20 AM

    These illegal activities has to be stopped by the Govt. Due punishments should be given to the culprits.
