Lankan convicts in Saudi appeal to Mahinda

    The president should interfere. The guys might have been guilty, but it would be in humanity`s interest to make an attempt to spare them from execution with the new Saudi King, who is the most progressive and matured one in Saudi`s history.

    The Shri Lankan Head of the state should make effort to free these men. All Muslim people of the Shri Lankan state please politely request King Abdulla pardon your follow citizens. They are human beings as yourself.

    Government officials should intervene to prevent from executing.

    But, let them to stay in the jail for some time, other wise, they will do the same in SL.

    Lives of these men of Shri Lankan Citizens should be saved. They have been there for employment which the SL government (which associates with Marxists & Racist religious groups) of SAL could not provide them employment.

    The muslims of SL should also appeal to the muslim king.

    I do not know what has this got to do with the muslims but Sri Lankan Government can appeal to the King Abdullah through the respective channels.

    We have to understand that Over 1.2 Million Sri Lankans are employed in the middle East benefitting over 5-6 Million or 1/4 population directly.

    It our duty as Srilankans to respect the ;laws of these countries without getting involved in Robberies,Prostituion,manufacture of Alchohol Etc

    MAHINDA IS VERY CLOSE TO SAUDI AUTHORITIES. HE HIMSELF CAN REQUEST THIS FROM THE KING AS A GOODWILL GESTURE. EITHER THEY CAN CONTINUE THE SENTENCE IN SRI LANKA OR IN SAUDI ITSELF. WHOEVER IS ON THE DEATH ROW, WE MUST SHOW COMPASSION TO THEM.

    Maninder,

    I refer to your response to this.

    You say `The president should interfere. The guys might have been guilty, but it would be in humanity`s interest to make an attempt to spare them from execution with the new Saudi King, who is the most progressive and matured one in Saudi`s history`

    By saying that the president should interfere, you are acknowledgeing that the government of Sri Lanka has not been involved in these issues.

    We have a similar problem here in Australia - with a drug trafficker in Singapore prison - to be executed on Friday. Our Prime Minister did respond but I feel that It was done without much `feeling`. This is because the Prime Minsiter does not feel connected intuitively to the migrant from Vietnam. The treatment given to White Australians was with that `feeling`. Right or Wrong - that is the Truth. Migrants must know this and therefore rely on themselves and not on government / political influence.

    Do you think that the President of Sri Lanka would intervene if those to be executed in Saudi were Tamils - especially Tamils supporting the Tiger cause?

    love

    Thank you TiggaLivzinAu.

    I agree that Mr. Howard has done more this time than he would have done previously for migrant Australians of Asian origins. But do you genuinely believe that Mr.Howard has done as much as he has for others such as Scheppelle Corby and Michelle Lee? I don`t. As an Australian I would have done more - become more involved at the root level. The PM hosting the Cricket match on Friday is proof that he does not `feel` for this person. Hence any `threats` he made were from a position of superiority to the Singapore PM and not as a humble request to save the life of a fellow Australian.

    I am happy to hear disagreement - sometimes more than agreement.

    Thank you Tigga

    love
