A few days ago, a Sri Lankan Tamil migrant in Canada was accused by the IRB (Immigration and Refugee Board) of war crimes, and if charged, he faces the risk of deportation. He is just one among hundreds of asylum seekers who boarded the MV Sun Sea ship in search of a better future in Canada that is home to the Sri Lankan asylum diaspora. The story of this Tamil migrant appears at a time when a United Nation’s report on war crimes leaked out to the media.
