    Why only the Kotalawala's and Sakvithi. What about Jayatilakas? VAT Fraudsters? All Srilanka's poor money is spent in Australia, Newzealand and middle east.

    KD Friday, 01 October 2010 06:55 AM

    Link is well clear. Just read the name of the cheater.

    Hash Friday, 01 October 2010 06:57 AM

    They cheat to get assylum.

    Travis Friday, 01 October 2010 06:58 AM

    Yes, his name suggests that he is clearly of a sri lankan minority decent but still he is a Canadian citizen. Sri Lankan's are not represented by this idiot.

    Yuri Friday, 01 October 2010 07:45 AM

    Its seems like Tamils are smarter then the Sri Lankan. becouse you need brain do such a thing. In sri lanka we do all the crime in the paraliament. no one can get there..

    kamal Friday, 01 October 2010 07:50 AM

    KD, do not try to white wash the terrorists.

    kamal Friday, 01 October 2010 07:53 AM

    Justice, you are very correct.

    Alakar Friday, 01 October 2010 07:56 AM

    Lets call the Canadian Police to solve he 7o million Robbery. They seems Very good.

    KD Friday, 01 October 2010 06:54 AM

    It's highly unlikely these are normal immigrants. Probably the people who smuggled into west under false refugee status.

    RF Friday, 01 October 2010 10:44 AM

    There are more of these types are available in Sri Lanka. If you want please let us know???

    a voter Friday, 01 October 2010 02:04 PM

    I agree. Its only an example.

    Kamal Friday, 01 October 2010 07:24 PM

    Yay another boat person at his best

    Tamioilan Saturday, 02 October 2010 04:47 AM

    Because not only Canada the whole world knows why Tamils are refugees in all over the world, Because of Srilankan Singalease Gorverment.

    TERRENCE B. DE SILVA Saturday, 02 October 2010 10:11 AM

    SRI LANKAN IMMGRANT HE MAY BE - BUT WHAT PASSPORT DOES HE HOLD NOW "CANADIAN."

    raj Saturday, 02 October 2010 06:45 PM

    all comments reflects racism. All races have good and bad people. Tamils' political rights have been fraded by Sinhalese leaders in Sri Lanka. Depriving rights of any race is also fraud.

    super star Friday, 01 October 2010 04:04 AM

    Oh dear this is why majority of good Tamil people and Indian Tamil people are been seen in a suspicious way from other countries. Please stop this kind of things. I will give a quote to all " There is a divine power above us it is watching us all the time, what you can see is not what you think but what you cant see are the thinks which is true by nature"

    Ariya Friday, 01 October 2010 06:52 AM

    Well, welcome to Torontuchchi, the capital of Canadaeelaam!!!

    Smart Aleck Friday, 01 October 2010 06:30 AM

    Come on Canada. Give the guy citizenship if he has not got it already. More to come.

    Dinesh Friday, 01 October 2010 06:07 AM

    What is the link between assylum & cheating

    eshan Friday, 01 October 2010 06:02 AM

    Canada - offer more assylum... and keep supporting.

    Christopher Friday, 01 October 2010 05:15 AM

    Ha ha this is the start wait and see as time goes...These countries must be thankful the war is over otherwise they would get more as refugees and more trouble.. but they deserve it.

    Justice Friday, 01 October 2010 05:10 AM

    Why is this Kokulan K referred as a Sri Lankan ? All atrocities caused by such refugees and fed well by Canada are conveniently referred to as Sri Lankan. Why not mention Sri Lankan Tamil immigrant ??? Why was the word "Tamil" taken off ? When it comes to seeking asylum and other benefits the word "Tamil" is used, but when reporting an atrocity like this, the word Sri Lankan only is used.

    Why these Double standards ???

    DHA Friday, 01 October 2010 04:46 AM

    Most of our Sri Lankans are really braining people but they use it for wrong doings.....how unfortunate...!

    Wasantha Friday, 01 October 2010 04:44 AM

    Let the Canada to keep him and pay the penalty.

    Tonto Friday, 01 October 2010 04:43 AM

    Find out if this guy is related to our own KP

    Dilan Friday, 01 October 2010 04:43 AM

    Even as immigrants Sri Lankans cannot stop trying to scam people

    Cotton Hall Friday, 01 October 2010 04:35 AM

    Not any where close to our local stars, the Kotalawala's and Sakvithi.

    rosh Friday, 01 October 2010 04:18 AM

    Excellent, Thanks Canada for harbouring all the Horu & Thakkadi... There are a few remaining, please take them too

    Hash Friday, 01 October 2010 04:18 AM

    i thought they are having more advance system than us

    Prabu. Friday, 01 October 2010 04:13 AM

    Canada deserves to be treated like this.

    Defender Friday, 01 October 2010 04:05 AM

    Ayyo, Canada. This is only a one result of your Refugee pardon. This is what I call "the snake theory".
    There were many such scams happened in GB, Canada & some of other countries done by LTTE supporters.
    Canada, pls think twice before jump!!
