    Then why Gota went to US and got the green card and permanant recidentcy?

    vignaish Friday, 01 June 2012 05:02 PM

    kabi,,, that's what you may be doing to call this country a paradise...i can see where you stand...this country is a paradise for the hooligans in the government....

    Rangan Friday, 01 June 2012 05:36 PM

    Unlucky lot.

    The next lot won judicially to stay.

    Vis8 Friday, 01 June 2012 07:49 PM

    They trashed Sri Lanka's name just to protect their "refugee status" and free care from the UK... I wonder what the great USA would do if an American citizen claimed these fake grievances for their own gain.... put him in court and then to jail??? Only in Sri Lanka will these terror-supporters will be allowed to live freely.

    At last they should realize this is where they own and simply can rest in peace

    Lion Friday, 01 June 2012 10:00 AM

    Fellows would have tried every trick in the book to remain in Uk as they are coming to a country where leaving is a night mare with the climbing prices of every commodt.y

    jacoob Friday, 01 June 2012 07:59 PM

    gayan silva Friday, 01 June 2012 08:12 PM

    Pl. Britain.......

    Keep them. Why you send them back.

    Let us know we can send any amount you want.

    Wara Friday, 01 June 2012 10:17 AM

    They sold their mother land to extend their visas. Now they have to come to the same country and feel the difference of what they said there.

    indi Friday, 01 June 2012 10:17 AM

    countries should not accept these migrants unless they have a threat to live in srilanka for coming forward against corruption.

    sri lankan Friday, 01 June 2012 09:25 PM

    who say they are assylum seakers., they are ECONOMIC REFUGEES., WHO WENT TO UK BY HIGHLIGHTING THE WAR. the people who were really harmed by the war (in both parties)were left behind., they dont ahve any money to go abroad.

    kumaraya Friday, 01 June 2012 10:22 AM

    This is a shame; shame for our country, for these young men and also, for Britain. We have an obligation to prepare our country to provide for these people so that thoughts of leaving will never arise. If they truly realized how hard life is in foreign lands, then they would not want to leave. If the Brits had clearer policies and if they treated their erstwhile "dominions" with due regard, then there will be no reason for anyone to want to "seek assylum".

    Dorothy Friday, 01 June 2012 10:16 PM

    everyone tries to move to their dream countries . Please do not slander or shame these people . Some of those who live overseas have used all types of available means to slip out of the country . How many politicians have slipped their children out and they have become citizens of the western countries ?

    kiribath Friday, 01 June 2012 10:19 PM

    75% of the young people wants leave sri lanka, bottem line is that. ( please do your own reserch )

    Lal.Fernando. Friday, 01 June 2012 10:34 PM

    Authorities should find out why they left the country.And try to rehabilitate them in a humane manner.After all these people will have some skills what the country can utilise towards development.

    Tammy Friday, 01 June 2012 10:38 AM

    Those fellows called illegal immigrants are living on the tax payers money and they like to stay in by hook or by crook to get the dole. Some turn into rogues and use all the tricks to rob people. Its good we get rid of as much as possible from UK.

    hemantha Friday, 01 June 2012 10:45 AM

    These people keep tarnishing the image of SL. How many tamilians live in peace in other parts of the country other than North. Still trying to figure what harassment they receive from sinhalese. In my work place we have more than 40 tamils live and they have no problems. Opportunists and politicians ruin this.

    PKR Friday, 01 June 2012 10:46 AM

    These people betryed everything to defame, disgrace srilanka to earn their visa to stay. They are crap, useless souls.
    Majority of them pershaps protested against srilanka.
    but now lets not do anything to these hopeless souls.
    Ignore them, turn blind eye. Let them manage their own affairs. But be watchful that they do not start harming our country within.

    sangakkra Friday, 01 June 2012 11:08 AM

    Tammy are yu an ex sri lankan? wonder how you migrated t UK a why??

    The uNDERTAKER Saturday, 02 June 2012 02:08 AM

    fresh_milk Saturday, 02 June 2012 02:12 AM

    Gota, what are you waiting for? Arrest these maniacs, this gutter-trash go overseas and spoil the reputation of our nation.

    live Friday, 01 June 2012 11:09 AM

    they give good try ...our people should support them, don't forget sri Lanka main income is foreign remittance .

    ajith Friday, 01 June 2012 11:15 AM

    They had a different agenda..no love for the motherland. but only tarnish her image...

    sangakkra Friday, 01 June 2012 11:16 AM

    Sorry, If they had Political Influence (Son/Daughter) no problem, they are good migrants. Even Karuna Amman was deported but he was sky rocketed to the top, good person. How How How

    jegan Saturday, 02 June 2012 04:15 AM

    do that yourself or ask your future children to do it..

    jegan Saturday, 02 June 2012 04:19 AM

    our president went to Geneva against then Govt on human rights and white van abductions..so he is a sinhalese perfectly alright..

    hello Friday, 01 June 2012 12:08 PM

    Hello Tammy, you talk like you are paying a lot yourself to UK tax collector. You too may have arrived there by foul means.

    jegan Saturday, 02 June 2012 04:23 AM

    what about the people who ROB our motherland,we still keep voting for them,they become patriots..

    Gaz Friday, 01 June 2012 12:14 PM

    these are the unlucky ones, and the ones who got caught!! how many would have crept in like that in the last 30years?? more than 90%

    Kabi Friday, 01 June 2012 12:18 PM

    Grow Banana, Vegis etc or be a fisherman , no need of going to London. Sri_Lanka is the paradise.

    CW Friday, 01 June 2012 01:59 PM

    Aiyo, please send them back to human right champions.

    sunnyman Friday, 01 June 2012 02:21 PM

    Unfortunately they are from poor families but our politicians are doing day light robberies here and abroad but never heard of in trouble. What happened there?

    Sue Friday, 01 June 2012 03:24 PM

    Let's not talk about love for motherland because if given half a chance everyone talking big here would run to any western country. These people failed and had to come back. Anyway its their country too, so let's hope they'll be able to live here peacefully.

    sam Friday, 01 June 2012 03:42 PM

    ettatherum aragena jiwathwenna rata bedagena kanna hadanne nethiwa

    Sen Friday, 01 June 2012 03:44 PM

    Dude, hold on.. Where did you come up with the theory only Tamils are the illegal immigrants? I lived in UK and now living in Canada [FYI: All by legal means as skilled worker].. but have seen so many Sinhalese, Muslims and Tamils do illegal stuff to get this Skilled program when we study and work hard to earn it... ! and FYI the most famous lawyer who makes even fake University of Moratuwa Degree and earn is a SINHALESE LAWYER living in NORTH LONDON !! So don't just talk without knowing facts.
