The Sri Lankan Navy is continuously monitoring and gathering intelligence from the Indian Ocean to curb human trafficking which is at a low at present, Navy Commander Vice Admiral Thisara Samarasinghe said.

“The Australian Navy and the Indian Navy are cooperating with our navy to arrest suspects who are engaged in human trafficking, including former LTTE cadres”, he added.

“We are physically present in areas where they tend to flee the country and pass the maritime boundary. They used different and unknown locations in the south to flee the country”, the Commander said

The Commander emphasized that it is a tough job to put a complete stop to human trafficking because asylum seekers now fled to other countries and then used boats to flee to their destination.

The Australian Navy Commander who visited the country to participate in the Diamond Jubilee celebrations of the Sri Lankan Navy was happy with the efforts that the Sri Lankan Navy had taken to curb human trafficking, Vice Admiral Samarasinghe said. (Supun Dias)

    As time passes, vigilance gradually will sink in the deep sea and corruption will fill the vacuum created by the absence of surveilance.It will lead to big business. Let's hope country will be saved by patriots.
