Thirteen Sri Lankan illegal immigrants deported by Australia detained at BIA

Thirteen Sri Lankan illegal immigrants were deported from Australia and were detained at the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) today.

Officials said that the Sri Lankans had reached Australia by boat and were deported on a special flight to Sri Lanka.

Australia had warned in June this year that its policy on illegal asylum seekers remains tough as ever and Sri Lankans looking to reach Australia by boat will have “zero chance” of being accepted.

Australian Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton had said that following the last elections in Australia the policy against people smuggling had not changed.
