Tamil asylums to land in Australia
The Australian immigration minister Scott Morrison confirmed this news to the media today. He has said that 157 Tamil asylum seekers were found on board a custom’s vessel.
Upon their arrival to Australia they would be sent to Curtin detention centre, which is on the south of Derby. It has to be mentioned here that after six months, an asylum seeker boat is set to arrive in Australia. Reports indicated that this decision was taken after wide range of consultations with the Indian Government.
The officials reportedly mentioned that negotiations would be initiated with the Sri Lankan government too as the asylum seekers were holding Sri Lankan citizenship.
