Why do public servants of Sri Lanka take to illegal migration?

Police Media Spokesman Ajith Rohana said that 22 persons who were staying in various places hoping to migrate illegally to Australia were arrested yesterday morning from Chilaw.

Investigations have been started regarding the aspirant illegal migrants and more arrests are expected to take place.

Ajith Rohana said that among the 109 persons who were recently arrested while attempting to migrate illegally en route sea to Australia there were 16 public servants also. No wonder the public employees of this country risking their jobs for a better future.

Most public servants who have middle class dreams especially for their children do not sea a good future here. They cannot save the millions of rupees they want to send the children abroad for education and residence after that.

Recent crime wave in the country of which the culprits are mostly linked to the politicians has also pushed the people to desperation.

We should not forget that the public servants were the major force behind bringing this regime to power. They were the most disillusioned lot who were not even granted the Rs. 2500 salary increase promised.

One of the public servants that wanted to migrate has been identified as a police constable.

Sri Lanka Navy that is vigilant on the illegal migrants arrested this group of people 25 nautical kilometers away from Kalkuda of Easter coast from where the multi-day fishing vessel they were on board believed launched.
