Sri Lanka deports Lebanese couple

[TamilNet, Saturday, 20 November 2010, 10:45 GMT]
Sri Lanka’s Immigration and Emigration Department Saturday morning deported the Lebanese Democratic Youth Union Leader, Mohamed Hottait, and his wife on a charge of participating in a protest rally organized by the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) against the United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) government in Kandy. The couple had been a tour in Sri Lanka.



The couple was taken into custody by the police at a location in Kandy Friday and later brought to Colombo Police Head Quarters for interrogation.

Immigration and Emigration Controller Chulananda Perera said that he issued the deportation order on a report from the Director of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID).

The CID had reported to the Immigration and Emigration Department that the Lebanese couple, who had entered the country on tourist visas, had participated in a certain anti-government rally while in the country. Therefore they were put on a aircraft belonging to Qatar Airways Saturday early morning around 2 a.m.
