The British government said that there was no evidence that returning migrants and refugees from the UK to Sri Lanka were abused, a latest report said.

“There have been allegations in the media of returning migrants and refugees being abused.  All such allegations in respect of returnees from the UK were investigated by our High Commission and no evidence was found to substantiate them,” the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) stated in its annual Human Rights Report for 2011, launched today.

    how many UK's reporters freely collected information that support UK's claim?

    Rohana Tuesday, 01 May 2012 10:16 AM

    Channel 4 reported several times in their news items that tamil refugees were being deported and the solicitors are working hard to put a stop. Jon Snow reported with his usual glee but later next day he had to say the tamils had to go back. This article should be sent to C4 & Jon Snow who supports the tamil diaspora for their financial benefits.

    Ranil Tuesday, 01 May 2012 10:37 AM

    Not only the papers but money paId to theChannel 4 in big time.

    Nodrog Tuesday, 01 May 2012 10:26 AM

    AJ, do you know this for a fact or is it some third-hand info from unknown sources? Don't talk about things you don't know.

    Ruwan Tuesday, 01 May 2012 10:59 AM

    you must belong to the terrorist diaspora to expect abuses?

    Good Sri Lankan Tuesday, 01 May 2012 11:38 AM

    Any Terrorist or any person entering to Sri Lanka to destroy Sri Lanka, we will consider as Terrorist. Do not put the blame to Sri Lanka for controlling Terrorist.

    Good Sri Lankan Tuesday, 01 May 2012 12:13 PM

    We are controlling Terrorist in our Sri Lanka we are not attacking other countries.

    kiribath Tuesday, 01 May 2012 05:00 PM

    UK is in no mood to keep migrants,refugees or student visa overstays, all of them have misuse the facilities

    sajitha Tuesday, 01 May 2012 07:42 AM

    Uk government has said this. Now no amount of reports talking would not change it. How much money was paid to UK reporters to publish these stories in the papers is the real question my man.

    Chat Monday, 30 April 2012 06:51 PM

    How do you know ?
    If you have evidence please come forwardand say something.Otherwise do not spread empty words.

    Mervyn Monday, 30 April 2012 07:48 PM

    It was the story spread by the Tamil diasporas and you British waiting to hook Sri Lanka blieved as the Gospel and initiated counterproductive actions. Sri Lanka was druming day in and day out that it is and was not abusing any returning refugees, but you British who had a bone to crack never believd. Since you know the TRUTH now please leave Sri Lanka alone.

    KSA Tuesday, 01 May 2012 07:27 PM

    Where on earth did you get this from anyway?
    The WWII concentration camps?

    Vis8 Tuesday, 01 May 2012 07:50 PM

    Yes, they have their "refugee status" to protect

    AMT Tuesday, 01 May 2012 09:20 AM

    there is evidence to show that Returnees were welcomed by the government and given ministerial post.

    Yuri Tuesday, 01 May 2012 09:04 AM

    We Sri lank an, never keep evidence, even there is one we called it Lie.

    ampare son Monday, 30 April 2012 11:51 PM
