Australia hails Lanka’s help against human smuggling

1The Australian Government today noted the assistance given by Sri Lanka in thwarting human smuggling at sea.

The Australian High Commissioner in Sri Lanka Robyn Mudie called on the Commander of the Sri Lanka Navy Vice Admiral Ravindra Wijegunaratne at the Naval Headquarters in Colombo today. She was accompanied by the Defence Adviser to the High Commission Captain Jasen Sears.

They held cordial discussions on issues of mutual interest and bilateral importance. The Australian High Commissioner conveyed her best wishes to Vice Admiral Ravindra Wijegunaratne on his appointment as the Commander of the SLN and pledged her fullest assistance and cooperation.

She also expressed her admiration of the SLN’s continued assistance to the Australian government in thwarting human smuggling via sea.

Mementos were also exchanged on the occasion symbolizing the goodwill and the friendship of the two countries.


  1. The influx of asylum seekers into Australia from Sri Lanka have stopped after the chief smuggler lost his business with the defeat of the Rajapaksa Government at the last general elections in Sri Lanka.

  2. Australian Government may be guilty about putting risk on life of these asylum seekers without any effort to save their life in Australian territory sending false message to people from subcontinent and meantime, Australian navy are called themselves they are the best in the world.

  3. Sri Lanka would have been taken to UN on fake war crime allegations during Rajapaksa time, if not Australia on Sri Lankan side. Tamil Terrorist Diaspora funded UN Officials with drug trafficking money to generate falsified witness reports against Sri Lanka but Australian help was enormous help for Sri Lanka at the time. Tamil Terrorist Diaspora is responsible of bringing boat loads of ex-terrorists to Australia, Canada and some European countries to expand their drug trafficking network. Australian Government and police should track and monitor all Tamil Terrorist boat people who claimed as refugees but they are doing illegal activities in Australia. Therefore Australia should thank Sri Lankan government for stopping illegal Terrorist boats.
