UK assisting Scottish woman who’s passport was seized in Sri Lanka

The UK Government is assisting a Scottish woman who’s passport was seized by immigration officers in Sri Lanka.

The Immigration and Emigration Department seized the passport of Kayleigh Fraser, accusing her of misusing her visa, granted to visit Sri Lanka.

Fraser had been given a visa to visit Sri Lanka for medical reasons but she was accused of using the visa to widely promote the anti-Government protests at Galle Face.

Aberdeen-based Labour councillor Deena Tissera said she is working with MSP Foysol Choudhury and the Scottish Government to make an enquiry to the Sri Lankan Government to ensure Ms Fraser’s safety and that her human rights are protected, the PA News Agency reported.

“Kayleigh has been getting calls asking her to immediately leave the country because her life could be in danger,” Ms Tissera said.

“She is a social media activist shedding light on the protests, state of emergency, and human right violations in Sri Lanka.

“Her British passport has been forcefully seized by Sri Lankan authorities with no given reason.”

Choudhury wrote to Sarah Hulton, the British High Commissioner to Sri Lanka on Thursday to ask what steps have been taken to “retrieve her passport and ensure her safety in Sri Lanka until her return to the UK”.

A PA News Agency quoted a Foreign Office spokesman as saying their staff are assisting the British woman in Sri Lanka. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. Evolution leads to devolution. But the western powers will continue to give you wrong ideas to keep the world’s majority under them.

    Why most parts of the world cannot even create a developed country? Relying 100% on democracy or autocracy will not make you successful. But wise leaders know where to apply democracy and autocracy to enhance the people’s knowledge and skills to create economic developments. If the people are less evolved then more autocracy need to be applied. Former late Prime Minister of Singapore, LKY applied combination of democracy and autocracy to lift the country to become a developed country. Above all he wasn’t corrupt and wise enough to create a talented team. But the Sri Lankan politicians are corrupt, easily foreign powers can use corruptions as a trump card to achieve foreign agendas. Plus Sri Lankan leaders do attract wise people but offer ministerial positions to unqualified and inexperienced party members. Basically, fools never become successful. Otherwise, what is the difference between wise and fools?

    The Sri Lankan politicians use religion and language to come to power and let the people indulge their laziness in the name of religion. Basically, leaders have been running the country by taking out loans and allowing the people to indulge in their laziness to get votes. It’s a completely useless system, the western powers deliberately introduced it to undermine billions of people to dominate the world. This system would work in western countries with a lot of natural resources or technical skills. Remember that North America and Australasia were invaded on genocide to possess enormous resources. South Asia does not have huge natural resources; if South Asia had resources, Britain would not have allowed South Asians to be independent. Europeans make money from their technical skills. But South Asians are not as advanced as Europeans to use technical skills to make money. Thus, South Asia should change its system and use its largest human resources to obtain foreign investment based on cost-effective production in the manufacturing and agricultural sectors.

    The people indulge in their laziness in the name of religion and democracy; at the same time enjoying human biology and increasing the population. An uncontrollable population puts pressure on limited resources; this creates internal rifts and makes it easier for the foreign powers to influence. China should teach the Sri Lankan people how to catch fish instead of feeding them. China should not encourage South Asian leaders to use religion and language to gain power, and the people should not indulge in laziness in the name of religion and should not increase their population while borrowing money to eat. Before the western invasion, the Sri Lankan kings ruled the country self-sufficiently. After independence, the Sri Lankan leaders should have followed the old Kings’ governing system to govern the country. Obviously, the foreign powers would do everything to make sure that you are depending on them. If the other countries do not buy tea or rubber, you cannot make money. Those Kings knew how to govern the country to be self-sufficient. The western powers removed the talented kings, robbed the country then introduced a political system to keep the uninformed and inexperienced leaders in power. After the independence, they changed the country’s name but they were not wise enough to change the political system.

    Then they brought Sinhala only and pushed aside the minority races. This led to Asia’s longest brutal civil war for decades which took the biggest part of the country’s budget. In fact, India created terrorism in Sri Lanka and eliminated talented leaders to keep the Tamil armed groups under New Delhi. Later on, the western powers hijacked Tamil armed groups from India and prolonged the civil war to achieve their ulterior motives in the Indian Ocean by pushing the LTTE against the Indo-Lanka agreement and Norway-led peace agreement through the Tamil diaspora leaders. India and the western powers eliminated talented leaders by supporting the LTTE. Now Sri Lanka has worse leaders who have destroyed the agriculture sector, including tea exports. Those wise kings never relied on tea or rubber exports. But the current leaders cannot even secure tea exports which were introduced by the western powers. This shows how much the western powers have achieved in developing countries through their political system and supporting terrorism to dominate the world.

    China didn’t make Sri Lanka, Nepal and Pakistan poor in the first place. The western system did it with the support of India. Those South Asian countries were poor; that is why they needed loans from China. However, China gave loans without concern about the failed system which was introduced by the western powers to dominate the world. Basically, India supported the system to please the western powers. Now South Asian countries are begging the world to eat. We cannot reverse those wrong beliefs in months or years. It will take decades. I can only try to change their mindset but I am well aware they would not change. Because they are under the firm grip of India and its western masters. One thing they should not forget, their country and region will continue to struggle with poverty and divisions because they don’t value politically well-informed South Asians.

    In South Asia, people are getting used to the concept that having corrupt and foolish politicians is part of democracy. Simply, they have no idea how they have been tricked by the western powers. Lack of knowledge and self-centred politicians make the western powers succeed. The average person does not know how much western countries have stolen from the world, especially from South Asia. They do not know anything about the British colonies’ invasions on genocides in North America and Australasia to steal those continents’ resources. Through a selective educational system, the western powers have been keeping the world’s majority in the dark for generations to rule over them. Especially, covering up their atrocities to occupy the moral high ground to create divisions among the world’s majority, especially through democracy and human rights.
