Foreign Minister Rohitha Bogollagama summoned British High Commissioner in Colombo Dr. Peter Hayes amidst accusations by a weekend newspaper that his office has sent a Sri Lankan girl to Britain facilitating her trip to London without a valid visa.

A state owned television said in a news broadcast that the Sri Lankan Minister has asked for an explanation from the High Commissioner while the government is holding a high level investigation into the matter.

It said, ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-the British High Commission has issued a letter to the Sri Lankan girl Angayatkanni Krishnapillai requesting British Airport authorities to facilitate her arrival at the Heathrow Airport. The report also said that the British High Commission had not issued the Sri Lankan with a valid visa but despatched a diplomat to the Katunayake International Airport to put her onboard a direct flight to the UK. It is being investigated into the possibility of the British High Commission helping more people to escape. Inquiries will concentrate on whether terrorists and various other criminals had been sent out of the country.ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚

The Controller for Immigration and Emigration P.B. Abeykoon was quoted as saying that they are probing the despatch of a girl to Britan in a direct flight with a letter issued by the High Commission, sans a visa. The ITN said It is the opinion of a majority as to why Britain was turning down applications for visas for reasonable causes while it was despatching individuals without granting visas and purely on a letter issued by the High Commission.

ColomboƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s Sunday Times newspaper said, it has learnt that the official, Lorna Crooks, Immigration Liaison Manager of the UK Border Agency (UKBA), enjoying diplomatic status had helped

the passenger. She had written to Sri Lankan Airlines that Ms. Krishnapillai would be accompanied by the High CommissionƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s Migration Delivery Officer, Malcolm Lewis to the airport. This is to facilitate her boarding the flight without any issues, the Sunday Times further said.

The Sunday Times added, ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-When Immigration officials found that she had no valid visa, the official had assured that she had been given a visa waiver and would be admitted to Britain upon arrival in London. Thereafter, the passenger had boarded a Sri Lankan Airlines flight headed for London. The UKBA comes under the British Home Ministry.ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚

    Dear Walter
    This is another way of human smuggling! British High(Spy)Commission smuggle this Tamil Female from Colombo Airport without a visa.It is Britian wanted Sri Lankans to take a valid visa to enter their country.Why this woman is exceptional to others?What is her speciality?Is she a Tamil Terrorists(LTTE) member wanted by Sri Lanka authorities?Or is she a British spy or MI6 agent?What is the importancy of escorted her to airport by BHC vehicle which covered under Geneva Convention(DPL)? Is it to avoid security checks within the city?Has she carried vital secret informations to Tamil Terrorist organizations? or BHC smuggled more important informations through her?Has she carried some more made up photograph’s to Channel 4?Is BHC liason officer personally escorted this tamil female to avoid Customs, Immigration and security checks at the AirPort? British High(spy) Commission comes under the ministry of foreign affairs.Everyone knows that David Milliband British foreign minister is an arch supporter of Tamil terrorist organization(LTTE) and he personally came to Sri Lanka to save Tamil Terrorist leader Prabakaran and other terrorists.Again he tried to pass a motion against Sri Lanka in UNO and UNHRC. Britian tried to stop IMF loan to Sri Lanka.All these actions are after Sri Lanka defeated Tamil Terrorists.British Government, British Foreign Minister and British High Commission are all support to tamil terrorism and against the Sri Lanka and singhalese.Sri Lanka’s curse is Britain since 1815!

    Tamil terrorist Anton Balasingham also worked as an employee (or a spy) at BHC.He too got British Citizenship and a degree from Britian and an anglo wife.Later he became the Tamil Tiger Terrorist Organization’s(LTTE) theoritian and almost the second in command in the leadership. Some of Anton Balasingham’s theories were as suicide bombs, Human Bombs, Civil targets,Kill innocent Singhalese civilians,Bomb on airplanes air ports, Land mines,destroy and destrupt much as public properties etc.This ex British High Commission Employee with Prabakaran responsible for 30 years terrorism in Sri Lanka which lost several billion $ and nearly 100,000 lives.To write Anton Balasingham and Prabakarn’s terrorism even 1000 pages are not enough.Those were well known to Sri Lankans and world.
    This is just another example of British High Commission’s dirty work.So that we Sri Lankans have to careful about these pommies dirty work in future too. They will do much as possible damage to our nation in future.They have not given up their agenda.They lost only one column!!

    Why make a big cry now. The law is in favour of Sri Lankan Authorities. If any passenger has to have a visa to enter a particular country, why the hell you allowed her to board the aircraft. The officials in S/L must learn to excercise their authority without any hesitation. I think we still think the “WHITE” skin is supreme. This would never have happened in any European, U.S.A. Canada etc. The officers who man these posts excercise their powers to the very letter of the law. Once you are refused, it is left to the passenger to fight it out. What to speak of the officers at the Airport. Just see what the chief of Immigration has said about the incident. He should have told the officers to exercise the powers given to them.

    Oh, the British are no more than a seafaring thieves. They can’t stop their thieving ways even now. I just can’t imagine how some former Sri Lankans take British citizenship and give allegiance to the Queen, who had been once our oppressor and still is.

    This woman could be a British spy
