EDM 136: Deportation of Tamils to Sri Lanka

That this House expresses its concern that Mr Easwarathasan Kietheeswaran, a Tamil, was deported to Sri Lanka and has now been found killed in April 2012, confirming the concerns reported by Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch of the significant risk to Tamils returned to Sri Lanka; notes with anxiety that removal directions have been set for the forced return of a group of Tamil asylum seekers on charter flight PVT030 on 31 May 2012; and urges the Government to take urgent action to review its policy of the removal of Tamils to Sri Lanka in the present climate so that further deaths and human rights abuses can be prevented and to halt the removals planned for 31 May 2012.
