The Supreme Court today dismissed a Public Interest Litigation filed by six human rights activists seeking an interim order preventing the deportation of about 2,000 Pakistani and Afghan asylum seekers arrested by the immigration officials.    

The Court observed that as the country had not ratified the UN Refugee Convention of 1951, Sri Lanka need not abide by the conventions governing refugees and asylum seekers. (Lakmal Sooriyagoda)

    Drug dealers come under the banner of refugees. UN needs only to protect so called criminals rather than protect real refugees. Beware of hidden agenda deals....
