A Sri Lankan youth named Dayan Antony who returned to Sri Lanka last morning from Australia after he was refused asylum and deported to Sri Lanka, told the media in Colombo that he was not a member of LTTE, but had pretended to be in order to get to Australia.

“I am not a member of the LTTE; but the agent who sent me to Australia on a forged visa told me to pretend that I was one and to tell everyone so,” he said at a media briefing arranged by the Government Information Department, hours before his released from the custody of the Sri Lanka Police

Soon after his arrival in Sri Lanka the police had detained him for few hours and recorded his statement and then released him late last evening.

“Before I landed here in Colombo, I thought I would be sent to the Boossa detention camp after questioning, but that has not happened. The police treated me well and I am going to be a free man again, as they are going to release me,” he said.

Police said they had released Dayan Anthony after recording his statement last evening.

    Its strange how some tamils despite not know how to communicate or not having any relatives in Australia are given preference or approval to stay in australia. I read in this news paper yesterday where a person was asked to only say the words "Asylum or refugee" and they are given preference. But genuine folks having all the necessities are turned down by the Australian government just for a thing like age.

    Although this person intends to go to a better pasture, the method he and his agents have used is betrayal of the country.

    This man should be able to live in our country in peace. His exposure to the media itself is a service to the nation.

    As with others of his ilk you can believe nothing. They tell what they think you will believe and which they think will benefit their case.
