Former Justice Minister Dr. Wijeyadasa Rajapakse, PC, yesterday said the possibility of those who had been seeking political asylum in Europe inflicting injuries on themselves couldn’t be ruled out.

MP Rajapakse pointed out that the British media in April this year reported how a Sri Lankan asylum seeker had got himself tortured with hot iron rods to deceive British authorities. The asylum seeker had claimed five scars on his back were evidence of torture, MP Rajapakse said, adding that the Court of Appeal had ruled that the Sri Lankan probably consented to the torture as part of a ruse called ‘self-infliction by proxy’ or SIBP (SF)
