    If it was the UN or some group of countries, I would agree. Being transparent could help. But with an entity like Channel 4 transparency is useless. Being transparent won't really change anything them, could actually backfire.

    Should be taken in to custody and should have given good food....

    Sapumal Bandara Wednesday, 06 June 2012 05:03 AM

    Transparent?
    What do you expect SL govt to do than deport a man who has entered the country illegally?

    I have been living in UK for the last 46 years presently retired. Me being a Sri Lankan Tamil it’s a disgrace what our community has done since early 1980 in UK.

    No only tarnishing our community, religion and our country they have become a eye sore in London streets of pocket areas.

    Theses bunch of minorities have made a misery for the ordinary hardworking innocent Sri Lankan Tamil population not only they introducing all racketeering such as Bogus passport /Visa and tearing the passport at the toilet once they land at any of the UK airport the latest propaganda is to send some fake photos to Home office and the respective institution of torturing and raping there community to get the asylum.
    I wonder for how many days they can do this?
    They don’t realise they are damaging our community more than the country.

    UK boy Wednesday, 06 June 2012 06:26 AM

    No. To find the truths, because local media don't dare.

    Malin Wednesday, 06 June 2012 06:23 AM

    Well done. That's the way the GOSL ahould act. Let this be a good lesson to others in the western media who is out to tarnish Sri Lanka's image by manufacturing false stories and lies.

    All ready damage is done, now deporting him will add fuel to the fire. Be transparent.

    Jan Chandra Wednesday, 06 June 2012 03:52 AM

    Good work. He should have been stopped at arrival. Every country has its border protection. So should Sri Lanka. It is not because the Govts. want to hide things. it is avoid traitors/terrorists getting in. it is amazing some supposedly Sri Lankans try not to understand.

    Dee Wednesday, 06 June 2012 03:51 AM

    Channel 4 should take on movie production, they seem to have good editors and dubbing editors . They should move to hollywood. they can start by doing a movie about nurturing terrorism.

    MOHAMED ASFAR Wednesday, 06 June 2012 09:16 AM
