Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) General Jagath Jayasuriya said today that the professors had gone after taking leave from August 12 to 20 citing research purposes.

However, after gathering information from London, the SIS had sought to arrest the academics prior to leaving the country but the four persons were reported to have left for London.

    If this news is true , any body with common sence would not leak it to the media , but would collect intelligence about those 4 and arrest them on their return .

    the statement of him re the Media can raise a person to the pedestal or bring down is very true. The pen is mightier than the sword/gun.

    ruwan Thursday, 15 August 2013 06:07 AM

    Why was they not arrested at the airport. They should be arrested by hook or crook

    What goes around comes around. Its also known as Karma.

    michael Wednesday, 14 August 2013 05:41 PM

    Who know what the Profs are up to

    But 4 great years have passed we still talk of LTTE, for how many more years are we going to keep talking about them,

    Building Roads or having Camps fm Vavuniya to Elephant Pass does not make Civilians from that area spend a normal live or even think start their live prior to the war.

    mack Wednesday, 14 August 2013 12:00 AM

    how come if you wiped out LTTE entirely you are scared of them? via DM Android App

    mukesh Wednesday, 14 August 2013 03:45 PM

    Is there any rule or law that the people who talked / met the terrorists should be punished? Wonder of Asia.

    What else Tamils can do? The Government which is not even prepared to implement 13 amendment have to take responsibility for the developments. .

    Dinesh Wednesday, 14 August 2013 04:34 PM

    A another deadly beast has born. This animal has the DNA of a tiger and a Lion. It is still a cub.

    The government is currently bottle feeding this deadly beast. Just like the previous tiger cub 30 years ago which killed 100,000 souls.

    JaffnaMadMan Wednesday, 14 August 2013 04:41 PM

    Oh, man,

    How can LTTE paint apply on it? Just because they you the word Tamil Eelam, it can't be linked to LTTE.

    No professors will participate knowing the troubles if they know if it is LTTE front.

    darrak Wednesday, 14 August 2013 05:07 PM

    Ban the usage of the words 'tamil Eelam' like the ban imposed on the use of the Swastika symbol by governments in the West.

    Porky Pig Wednesday, 14 August 2013 05:35 PM

    We all have to also go into the human rights violation during the war where thousands of civilians were massacred. He seem to the conveniently forgotten it.

    Asoka Wednesday, 14 August 2013 03:08 PM

    Don't give any space for these haters of motherland and terrorists oriented people. By hook or crook wipe out same as how Sri Lanka army wiped out entire LTTE leadership and LTTE

    Rubert Vanderkoon Wednesday, 14 August 2013 05:43 PM

    If anybody engages in acts that support terrorism, it is something the CDS not the UGC that should look into.

    kirthi Wednesday, 14 August 2013 05:45 PM

    What's the real story here?

    Indrajit Wednesday, 14 August 2013 06:13 PM

    Good reason to claim refugee status. Is this a setup? How much money obtained for the setup?

    Robert Wednesday, 14 August 2013 08:58 PM

    Professors are reaserching on finding Justice for Thamils. They not uneducated like politicians or army . After all they on holidays interested on matters related SL .
    This shows Army is justifying their overseas expenses and operations

    Saman Thursday, 15 August 2013 12:51 AM

    Upon arrival, show no mercy! These traitors are still on government's payroll. Shoot them in public!

    Pushparajah Thursday, 15 August 2013 12:51 AM

    could you please define what is motherland and their sons. Who really love their mother and sell their mothers. being a Sri Lankan I want the sons of Sri Lanka think before they speak.

    Unicorn Thursday, 15 August 2013 01:31 AM

    Once them return to the island, must arrest them and investigate what was their motive behind.

    Simple Simon Thursday, 15 August 2013 02:48 AM

    If Muralitharan, KP and Pillayan can be part of the Govt, why can't others take the side of the "tigers" who are supposed to be all dead?
