Stop the Repatriation of the Sri Lankan Refugees Now!

SUARAM’s urgent appeal on the plight of Sri Lankan refugees who complain they are being illtreated by Malaysian officials is reproduced below. Sri Lanka’s government has been accused of grave war crimes and humanitarian abuses. Despite that, it appears that the Malaysian government is assisting fficials from the Sri Lankan High Commission repatriate ethnic minority Tamil asylum seekers from Sri Lanka who fear for their lives at the hands of the Government of Sri Lanka. About 300,000 Tamils still live behind barbed wires in internment camps in Sri Lanka, unable to return to their homes since the end of the civil war earlier this year. Please respond to this urgent appeal by circulating the same, and sending the suggested letter of protest (at the end of the post) to the authorities.
