    When are they stop this slave trade? How many more lives needs to be slain before Sri lankan authorities stop this? They are not doing so due to balance of foreign currency income to Sri lanka. These maids are only earning peanuts compared to government waste like ministers foreign trips.

    So long as we live by selling our young mothers for slavery so that our politicians can go on robbing, these kind of horrendous news will keep flowing.
