ELECTRICIANS, security guards, government workers and
businessmen were among a wave of middle-class asylum seekers caught
leaving Sri Lanka by boat, the country's navy has revealed

In a briefing to a Liberal MP on a study tour, Sri Lanka's navy revealed
that most of the 2279 people arrested leaving on 52 boats this year from
24 locations were "economic migrants" looking for a better life in
Australia.Sri Lankan authorities believed the asylum seekers had
mortgaged property, taken out loans, pawned jewellery and received
support from others to fund the $10,000 payment for people smugglers to
take them to Australia.
