Australia yesterday issued a stern warning to the people smugglers, especially to the Sri Lankans for selling lies to asylum seekers about visa opportunities in Australia.

Australia's warning comes following the return of another 36 Sri Lankan men from Christmas Island late Saturday.

Since 13th August, Australia has returned 255 Sri Lankans home, both voluntarily and involuntarily.

Australia's Regional Director of immigration Jose Alvarez speaking to the media during a news briefing in Colombo said his office had noticed a rise in illegal immigrants from Sri Lanka and was taking a hard line.
