    Excellent! It is about time someone stands up to defend the right to bear mobile phones, a right so often neglected despite being prominently featured in the Sri Lankan Constitution..err...sorry....the UN Bill of Rights......err.....sorry....well, where ever it was codified.

    [ordinary airport workers have no access to facilitate such rackets.]

    In Sri Lanka rackets are a way of life, the airport is no exception!

    All the institutions should be privatised in Srilanka!. Then only you can develop a poor country.Look at the strikes inthe country.Teachers,civil servants , nurses ,railway etc everybody waiting to strike .I was waiting for several years for a telephone line and always declined because no `loops`. Once Telecom privatised within a month I got the connection.Majority of our people do not want to work but they are looking for Human rights.!.

    Good job.. These loop holes should be closed. Mobiles should be banned and the land lines should be monitored.

    and only the english news channels should be displayed on public TV units within the airport premisses. Recently I have see most of the TVs have Tamils channels while duty free shop dealers are watching TV throughout like jungle monkeys. May be some of them are LTTE supporters monitoring AF facility nearby.

    There is nothing to hide. SL is on state emergency fighting blood thirsty tamil terrorists.

    we should do everything possible to prevent any further attacks on civilian or military targets

    Good move! There is a lot of corruption at the airport and

    if public phone and department phone are available, why use

    a mobile phone? There are lots of shady deals within the

    airport.These people should be arrested!
