    Release poor fishmans, impound the boats. Until the owner appeared himself by person do not release the boat. Impose a heavy cash penalty to release the boat. If the boat engage in bottom trawling increase the penalty by four fold.,

    These Indian fisherman must be thinking Sri Lanka is already a state if India because our stupid and corrupt leaders have already surrendered to Emperor Modi.

    This is a joke. They should be fined and the boats confiscated. The Indians think SL belongs to them and they can walk all over us.
