A six-year-old Sri Lankan girl previously believed to have been lost or killed during the 2004 tsunami has been found after six years.
According to Anoma Dissanayake of the National Child Protection Authority (NCPA), the girl, believed to be from the southern town of Galle, "was not legally adopted and her identification papers were falsified. We will now be conducting DNA tests to find her real parents."
The child's foster-father claims she had been bought for about $20 from a worker at a hospital devastated in the disaster, which killed over 30,000 people. "It was obvious their story was untrue," Dissanayake told. "You cannot buy children off the streets in Sri Lanka as if you were buying mangoes." The foster-father has since been arrested, although police are continuing to search for his wife.
"Until her real parents are traced the girl will looked after by us," Dissanayake said.

Dont use these for printing since it is illegal in Sri Lanka!
Sri Lankan banknotes are unusual in that they are printed vertically on the reverse. Banknotes are currently printed by "De la Rue Lanka Currency and Securities Print (Pvt) Ltd", a joint venture between the Government of Sri Lanka and Thomas De la Rue, a British banknote and securities printer.
Current banknotes are issued in denominations of 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000 and 2000 Rupees. The note of 200 rupees was issued in 1998 to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Independence for Sri Lanka. The 200 Rupee note was only intended to be in circulation for a short time, but due to its popularity it remains in circulation to today. On 17 October 2006 a new note of 2000 Rupees was issued. Older Sri Lankan and Ceylon banknotes remain legal tender.

Governments around the world are studying the "Sri Lanka method" for dealing with internal conflicts, but the prospect should fill us with alarm.
Respected independent observers including the US State Department and the International Crisis Group have drawn attention to credible allegations of war crimes against both the Tamil Tiger rebels and the government, leading to thousands of civilian deaths. If Colombo can get away with it -- by beguiling western media, for example, into focusing elsewhere -- then it sets a dangerous precedent.

Sri Lanka has blocked over 100 porn websites that allegedly feature local men and women, the government said Thursday, in its biggest yet Internet censorship move.
The Sri Lankan Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) has been asked to prevent users in the country accessing some 107 adult websites, the government information department said.
The move followed complaints heard at Colombo's Juvenile Court that children had free access to the websites, which featured Sri Lankan men and women.
Other adult sites featuring non-Sri Lankans will remain available, however.
In July last year, the TRC blocked 12 other porn websites, including redtube.com, an adult content sharing portal.
Sri Lanka already maintains an unofficial ban on websites of dissidents by getting local Internet service providers to block access to those portals. However, users can still access those sites by using proxy servers abroad.
