SL GOV should immediately look in this matter whereas these Maldivians not only in frauds also into drug smuggling and use.its going out of control and this is extremely alarming, we could notice the way maldivians behave on streets with sore eyes and these people using drugs is evident.

Why did he come to SL? Here we are crowded with people who defraud locals, not with just 3.5 million but with billions. Sorry man, no vacancies!

Behavior or Maldivians need to be monitored. Suddenly the Maldivian population had risen drastically in and around Dehiwala and Mount Lavinia Areas. Are they permanent residents of Sri Lanka?
