A senior member of the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam Suresnath Ratnabalan had deported along with his family.

he refused entry into the country on Thursday, shortly after landing at the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA), Katunayake, with his family, officials said yesterday.

They said that 48-year-old Suresnath Ratnabalam had arrived on a scheduled Etihaad flight from Abu Dhabi along with his wife and two children at 3:45 p.m.

They left Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) during the early hours of yesterday morning, officials said.

Ratnabalam and his family were placed on a Bangkok bound SriLankan Airlines flight after he was refused entry into the country as he is blacklisted.

His family was however, permitted to enter the country but they opted to stay with him.

According to officials several top Ministers had applied pressure on Immigration authorities to revoke the deportation order also known as an XForm, but without success.

Immigration authorities had insisted that the Ministers should make the request in writing, but all of them declined, and Ratnabalan was finally sent out of the country.

Even during his stay at the BIA the whole family were provided with VIP treatment for reasons known only to those that were interested in getting him and the family into the country, the officials explained.

They said that in a case of a deportation the individual or individuals are kept in a designated detention centre until they are put on a flight.

However, in this case Ratnabalan and his family were provided with hotel accommodation inside the airport which is not standard procedure, they added.
