Colombo, Feb 22 (Daily Mirror) - An appeal application filed by a British woman instagrammer Kayleigh Fraser challenging the authorities' decision to deport her from Sri Lanka has been dismissed by the Supreme Court.

Kayleigh Fraser who had been documenting Sri Lanka’s anti-government protests on social media filed this appeal challenging the legality of the Court of Appeal decision to dismiss her writ petition. In her writ petition, the appellant sought an order to quash the decision of the Department of Immigration and Emigration to deport her in an arbitrary manner.

The Attorney General had raised preliminary objections against the appeal on the basis that there is no proper affidavit before court and that the appellant has suppressed material facts and misrepresented facts to court. 

The Department of Immigration and Emigration had decided to terminate the visa issued to Fraser for violating visa conditions and had informed her to leave the country by 15 August 2022.

    Hope she is in ‘good health’ now! She better not apply for medical visas in the future.

    That’s why it’s Called a Tourist Thursday, 22 February 2024 02:04 PM

    This is the way if those on various tourist Visa’s should be handled. Like in most countries, tourists are Not Allowed to get involved in any political issues

    Its high time the UK deports all the Sri Lankan economic drifters holed out in the UK , and also stop issuing them any more visas.

    You are the same Upcountry Indian Tamil with anti Sri Lankan agenda and multiple “ insane “ aliases, to support your psychotic mind.

    Absolutely, Sri Lankans are living illegally by the hundreds in the UK without a visa, and we find one reason for politics to deport a person.

    UK needs these drifters to maintain their economy as most of their population is old. So your wish will not be fulfilled by the UK government. In this lady's case she has violated visa conditions but our government has been unable to deport her fir two years. Same with UK, their deportation laws are even not easy to be implemented quickly. It takes years before a case is closed and the person is deported.

    Some Brits including some in their parliamentarians think SL is still one of their colonies for them to do whatever they like. Sadly even some of our citizens also have the same mentality.

    sarath Thursday, 22 February 2024 04:41 PM

    Hey European-If UK deports them where will you get your cheap labour from

    Lanka Thursday, 22 February 2024 04:54 PM

    You have violated her fundamental human rights to move freely and enjoy her life as she like in sri lanka. She did not come as a illegal migrant . She paid her fees to get visa and she spent money to come..No immigration department must pay her for all expenses..

    ANNECUNT Thursday, 22 February 2024 05:34 PM
