Conspiracy to tarnish Lanka’s image: Keheliya

[DailyMirror, Wednesday, 4 July 2012 08:25 3 Comments]

The government yesterday said there might be elements with vested interests trying to tarnish the image of Sri Lanka by falsely accusing the country of being a haven for human smuggling.

Government spokesman and Minister Keheliya Rambukwella said no Sri Lankans were found in the most recent cases of asylum seekers who were arrested or found in capsized boats.

“There was a lot of misleading information being disseminated recently implicating Sri Lanka as the originating point for asylum seekers. This is only hyped up information with no truth in it” he said

Mr. Rambukwella also said people with vested interests seemed to be planting the term ‘Sri Lanka’ into incidents of asylum seekers in order to further their agendas. “Obviously there is an element of doubt regarding these allegations, people with vested interest seem to have their own agendas of tarnishing the name of the country” he said.

Minister Rambukwella said this explained why the name of the country was always recorded as the port during initial reports, but later retracted. “There were no Lankans in the recent boat controversies, but the country’s name was planted in initially, to meet ulterior motives of some elements,” he said.(Hafeel Farisz)

    Sri Lanka has to be renamed as “Hori Langa”. It has has all kind of “diseases”. The Genocidal nature of this country cannot and will never prosper. It is going towards a downward trend. Tamil Political Prisoners had been assaulted, their limbs broken and kept away from tamil Politicians and Lawyers. Is this a BUDDHIST country? No, no, no, no, no. This is a country full of SINS. The President his brothers and the crowd around them are sinners and has become INSECTS. Their unacceptable sinning has passed the LIMIT of GOD’s patience, and for this reason, the Almighty will have a definite plan to STOP these LOW class INSECTS soon.
