Channel-4 journalist deported
Shirani Sabaratnam, who works at the London-based Channel-4 TV Station as an editor and a presenter, arrived in Sri Lanka on Sunday. On arrival she was detained at the airport by Sri Lankan law enforcement authorities and later deported to Britain, informed sources said.
The sources alleged that Ms. Sabaratnam, a former LTTE member, had arrived with her British husband from Britain via Dubai on Sunday. Her detention and subsequent deportation was the result of her being blacklisted.
On being questioned by detectives, Ms. Sabaratnam admitted she had used different passports to travel to Sri Lanka’s North both during the war and after the war ended.
Authorities believe that the husband and wife were visiting Sri Lanka to do another documentary critical of the Government.
Ms. Sabaratnam was born at Vaddukoddai in Jaffna and is married to Stuart Cosgrove a director of Channel 4. They are reportedly playing a major role in Diaspora activities against Sri Lanka.
Meanwhile, Police are looking for the husband of Sabaratnam, Stuart Cosgrove, who is reportedly staying in a luxury hotel in Colombo.

How come Sri lankan law does not permit to arrest and charge forign criminals like this Shirani Sabaratnam, the multi-passport holding Gunaratnam from Australia etc rather than simply deporting them out to attack Sri lanka another day?
Is holding a forign passport an immunity from arrest for any international criminal? What is going on?
Excellent suggestion Manjula; these Sabaratnams and Gunaratnams are agents of destruction who are pursuing the division of our land at the behest of LTT rump. Why cannot their visa applications be vetted prior to approval to prevent these Terror goons from setting foot on the golden soils of our land?
