    There must be a thorough impartial investigation into this Visa Fraud. Because our country`s image is tarnished abroad. Any body who is trying to go abroad, genuinely are also looked at suspiciously by the Foreign Missions here. If really the Nigerian is to be blamed the Govt. must do it utmost to recover all the monies paid by the Innocent youth to him.. They must be compensated for what ever they have paid. I hope in future, the Minister will look after our Sports affairs only. E.g. Look at the state of our Cricket team after winning the World Cup 10 years ago, Now we have to qualify to play in the Champions Trophy.

    U.S. doesn`t have any shortage of this kind of Manuel labor. According to U.S. Immigration policy, employers are allowed to sponsor employees on H1 Visa, only when they cannot find a particular type of labor within the United States. Sea food processing is not Rocket Science and there are plenty of labor available in U.S. to that kind of work. This is nothing but another scandal organized and conducted by corrupted politician like Jeevan Kumaranatunga. He should resign from his portfolio without embarrassing President. Then again, he doesn`t have a integrity or courage to do that. A typical politician in third world.

    Poor guys got caught because their agent didn`t pay the right amount of bribe to the corrupted immigration guys. Or may be they were tipped off by a rival agent. All these agent and minister guys will come out spotless, but poor workers will loose all their money.

    BTW if it was a Tamil agent or anyone who slightly suspect of being an Eelam supporter all this media will shout `LTTE`s human smuggling racket busted` or `LTTE`s `kapam` collectors arrested while on their way to USA`!

    Is he brother-in-law of CBK? Imagine if he is related to any one in LTTE !!!

    Corrupted politicians ruin the country. These types of illegal work will tarnish the image of the country. People really want to do genuine business with US can`t get visa due to these dirty work. Government should take tough action against these culprits irrespective of the position and send them to jail. Otherwise we can`t make a good country to our children. Jeevan should resign from his portfolio allowing government to conduct an independent inquiry.
