War refugees, chain migration and the importation of cruel foreign customs
1. The transplantation of war refugees.
This upsetting story started with the transplantation of a war refugee from Colombo to Australia. The chain of events began with the issue of some humanitarian visas in 1984.
Nations have to offer help and protection to war refugees. But going far beyond that with unchecked immigration and allowing new arrivals to remain un-integrated in the host nation after resettlement is threatening even the survival of the host nation. Fortunately, Australia does not adopted the practice of calling every border-crosser a refugee.
2. The acquiescence to importation of foreign customs
The events of this case brought into Australia a foreign custom of arranged marriage. This foreign custom is enhenced with the advantage offered by Australian rules on chain migration.
On paper, the Sri Lankan-born Kannans presented a typical
Australian immigrant story. Kumuthini came to Australia on a
humanitarian visa in 1984 at age 17 after her parents fled the civil war
in Sri Lanka. She finished high school in Melbourne and completed an
occupational health and safety degree before agreeing to an arranged
marriage with Kandasamy, an IT worker from Sri Lanka. She sponsored him
to come to Australia on a skilled migrant visa and they were married in
1994 before having three children, who have each been diagnosed with
varying degrees of autism.
This is confirmed from Court document
117 The civil war in Sri Lanka resulted in you and your family being forced from your home to live in a refugee camp in Colombo for a period of months. You were subjected to an unsettling and frightening time. You later came to Australia with your family on a humanitarian visa in 1984, when you were 17 years old. … you completed one year of applied science at the Caulfield Institute of Technology.

119 You lived in Canberra with your husband for 18 months before returning to Melbourne. You returned to work with City West Water, then engaged in charity work until commencing a family in 2000. In 2002, you started full-time work in customer service at an ANZ Bank call centre. This employment concluded in 2016 when details of this court case were published in the media. Your subsequent attempts at employment were not successful due to adverse media publicity. As such, you have been unemployed since late 2017 and have been living at home.
120 You report having a good relationship with your husband and describe him as a quiet man who gets frustrated easily. There has never been abuse or violence in your relationship. You describe yourself as doing, saying and organising everything for the family.
IN THE SUPREME COURT OF VICTORIA
S CR 2018 0063
THE COMMONWEALTH DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC PROSECUTIONS Crown
KUMUTHINI KANNAN Accused
3. The imported foreign customs are more than just arranged marriage.
In this case the concern is that “domestic helpers” from other cultures may be a varied form of slavery. Some community of immigrants may not integrate well into the main national culture and retain a close knit of “diverse culture” enamored by the over-promotion of “multiculturalism”.
The Kannans were considered respectable members of their Tamil
community and references that said they were committed to social causes and helping others were a “stark contrast” to their crimes, Justice Champion said.
Actually, the persons keeping a “domestic helper/slave” even have difficulty in realizing by themselves the offence due to their background from another “diverse culture”.
Kandasamy and Kumuthini Kannan were found guilty of using the woman as a slave from 2007 to 2015
The woman endured physical abuse at the hands of her captors, suffering permanent injuries
“Slavery is regarded as a crime against humanity,” he said.
“Your offending occurred in the daily presence and with the obvious knowledge and comprehension of your children…
Justice Champion branded the couple as “almost compulsive liars”.
“The number and brazen quality of the lies has been nothing short of astonishing,” he said.
No statement of sorry were offered
Justice John Champion told the Supreme Court of Victoria the couple showed “a distinct lack of care”.
“They must have been aware she was probably days away from dying, and it’s never been conveyed that ‘we were sorry’,” he said.
And even seriously illegal activities had been made to cover the actions.
… prosecutor Richard Maidment QC told the court a phone in the KK home was tapped by the Australian Federal Police, who captured
conversations the couple had with a man in India.
Mr Maidment presented the jury with transcripts of the conversations, saying it appeared a meeting had been set up between a third party and the alleged victim’s son to encourage him “not to pursue the
Mr Maidment said Mrs KK was captured saying: “We need proof to say they are doing all this to get money”.
So much damages have resulted from the over-promotion of “cultural diversity”.
4. Massive immigration threatens to extinguish established national culture.
Beware that besides chain migration, domestic slavery, there are also other foreign customs awaiting discussions. They are:
Female genital mutilation,
Eating dogs, eating cats.
Unfavourable attitude on existing dressing standard of females,
Once the national culture is gone, national cohesion will disappear. This is the sad consequence of mass immigration.
