Rizana case: Govt vows action against all responsible

  • 3 Aug 2007 11:27:13 GMT

    [The Government yesterday assured that action will be taken against [all parties responsible for sending 17 year old Rizana Nazik for foreign employment]].

    All parties include the employer too. Is slanka going to take action against him/her too???.This is nothing but bull... to please the aggrived parties. Slankan government has so far done nothing about the case. It is the asian human rights organisation based in HK, paying bills of a lawyer to represent the poor girl.

    Like somebody said already above, there may be thousands more. It is time government did something concret about the whole issue and not just utter some words and then forget about it.

    Rai, it is always the case. Now the GOSL wants to show that

    somebody else is responsible for sending her.All agencies

    are having political backings and that is why they are all

    doing as the please.Money changes human feelings!All what

    is investigated should be put out in black and white with photos so that the public can see.Also the parents of the child should also be punished!

    It is easy to pass on responsibility to the agencies concern and blame them, but does it in any way help the whole situation that women/girls like Rizana are entangled in, poverty, lack of employment opportunties whose responsibility are these?

    She was under-aged when she left the country! This is a

    crime and people involved should be responsible.

    I extermly sorry about Rezana`s incident. I did lots of works for her in media. I requested Saudi government, child`s parents and Sri Lanka authorities to grant her pardon. I also, posted email each and every one to send same request those people.I feel she is like my sister.She is coming from very poor family.I am thinking that how many families living in Srilanka like this situation. What is the government responsibilities for thos families.They lie people and come to the power and they forget everything. What they are doing? simple!! They start to make millions and billions for them and their families and others.

    Anyway,I hope Sri-Lanka government must responsible for this incident and they must responsible to request all authorities for this innocent girl`s pardon.

    I have been in SaudiArabia for 6 years and I know thieir culture.Always Saudi support their side whether other party right or wrong. ALso, they dont like any foreigners, They think we are slaves and we have to work accordingly their desire.They dont have any forgievnes even Prophet Mohamed says in Kuran it.

    I pray my God to grant pardon through the court or child`s parent but I have doubt.
