GOSL facts exposed.....UNP Sirisena cooray sent Somawansa to UK under false passport and now JHU Champika ranawaka sends Karuna to UK under false passport...History of GOSL repeats with false Passport & UK Visa.....Jayawewa
People Trafficking is categorised as a heinous crime and its onus is laid at the door of agents, acting single-handedly or as organized gangs, who smuggle them across international borders. There is, however, an exception where a state resorts to this modus operandi.
Sri Lankan government has a history of assisting criminals to bogus travel documents to cross borders. During the second rebellion of the People?s Liberation Front- JVP, its leader Somawansa Amerasinghe was issued with false passports, though with the collusion of a serving minister at the time, ultimately to reach the United Kingdom. He remained a free individual in the United Kingdom despite the well-documented mass killings orchestrated by him.
Prime suspect in the murder of BBC journalist Nimalarajan too benefited from false passports provided by the Sri Lankan state to evade the law of his land. More known as Napoleon, former private secretary to (Paramilitary) EPDP Douglas Devananda and currently UK in charge for EPDP, this individual too entered the United Kingdom and remains free. Here again, it was a cabinet minister who facilitated his gentlemanly exit.
The latest arrival is the paramilitary leader, more known as Karuna who arrived in the United Kingdom. He too had been issued with a false passport that facilitated trouble free exit from Sri Lanka. The documented evidence from a variety of rights groups in respect of him compares no better than that of Somawansa Amerasinghe. Karuna, however, is not a free bird now.
Who is next?
Britain is faced with a dilemma. Digging in to his false passport would have serious repercussions on bilateral relations with Sri Lanka. It is not a travel agent or people trafficker who is involved in this. The Sri Lankan state perpetrating this crime, heinous is the favoured characterisation, makes it a very complex issue. Britain has to contend with an issue that goes beyond the realms of bilateral relations. What has come in to play is the violation of international laws and Britain cannot forsake them to save bilateral relations.
