However the incident prompted an immediate response online, with many criticising the authorities for “pandering to a tiny percentage of Edinburgh’s public”.Scott Cockburn wrote: “If you rent or buy in High St, do you think it’s a quiet flat? Ridiculous. Council should be representing majority and tourism rather than handcuffing pipers. Madness.”Marion McLaren, said it was “ridiculous” to use the hard-pressed resources of Police Scotland to chase buskers when the force did not “have enough officers and money to tackle real offences”.There was also some support for the action of the police, with Wes Murdiff saying that that in order for a yellow card for noise pollution to be served, personal details are required.He added: “To refuse to give your details is…obstructing a police officer during the course of their duties.” Police and the city council launched the card scheme last summer to help tackle anti-social behaviour, including excessive noise levels.One survey last year found Edinburgh was the fifth worst city in the UK for complaints about noise, with Kensington and Chelsea at the top of the list.Over 14,300 complaints were made in the Scottish capital between 2015 and August 2017.Joanna Mowat, a Tory councillor in the city centre, said at the time that the problem was how to “balance residents’ rights to enjoy peace and quiet in their own home with the desire to make Edinburgh a vibrant city”. Officers engaged with the buskers asking them to consider only playing on six days of the week to give local residents some respite on one dayPolice Spokesperson He was cuffed by police in front of shocked tourists “On Sunday June 4 officers from the city centre Community Policing Team observed a bagpiper busking at Castlehill.“The noise level was clearly excessive. The busker concerned was told to stop playing and issued with a ‘yellow card’ warning which outlines the relevant legislation. A noisy bagpiper was arrested in front of shocked tourists after playing “too loudly” in the centre of Edinburgh.John McDonald was busking on the Royal Mile on Sunday, one of the city’s busiest tourist thoroughfares, leading from the castle to the Queen’s official residence at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.He was approached by officers as part of a crackdown on noisy street performances and warned about his sound levels.He is understood to have been arrested after refusing to give his details to officers from Police Scotland.A police spokesman said they actively encouraged responsible busking on a street that is popular with performers throughout the summer, especially during the city’s festivals in August.She added: “Police in Edinburgh have received complaints from local residents and a councillor about excessive noise from bagpipe buskers on the Royal Mile over the last month.“Officers engaged with the buskers asking them to consider only playing on six days of the week to give local residents some respite on one day.

The busker refused to comply with this and he was arrested. He was released later in the day.”Thomas Wilson, 28, another piper who saw Mr McDonald being detained, told the Sun the incident was “disgraceful”, adding: “None of us want hassle from the police.“When they asked him for his details he refused, rightly in my opinion as he had done nothing wrong.“Buskers on the Royal Mile know neighbours don’t always appreciate it so we try to keep the level below 80 decibels.“We all play with bagpipes that output at half level, that’s the noise of an ambient street. We are trying to respect the local businesses.”
Officials in the UN refugee agency said that many factors including medical and education facilities were found to be reasons behind the declining number of Sri Lankan nationals return to their native country. “Some of them postpone their applications saying that they don’t want to discontinue medical treatments and education here. But so far nobody had complained to us about ‘safety’ as reason for not returning to their country,” an official said. With monetary aid from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), more than 1,600 Sri Lankan Tamils living in Tamil Nadu as refugees have returned to their country so far since January 2012.According to the New Indian Express, officials of the UNHCR, who have their field office in the city, said that about 1,264 Sri Lankan Tamils, who were living in special camps across the State, had returned through voluntary repatriation to their country between January and December 2012. This year, about 350 refugees have returned so far. In Chennai there are two open refugees’ camps – in Gummidipoondi and Puzhal. About 1,670 refugees returned to their country in 2011 which was comparatively lesser than 2,040 persons in 2010 after the end of war in 2009. The UNHCR also conducts checks for the safety of the refugee back in his country. “Once a person expresses his willingness to return and applies to us, we check if the place they want to settle is safe. We also do random monitoring of these people after they return. But if they face any trouble upon their return, they get back to us,” an official explained.There are over 60,000 refugees from the island nation living in refugee camps in Tamil Nadu which constitutes about 36 per cent of total number of refugees in the country.
