Penang, Wed, 20 Jul 2011 ANI

Penang (Malaysia), July 20 (ANI): Malaysian Deputy Chief Minister P. Ramasamy expects the Indonesian government not to send back the 89 Tamil refugees from Sri Lanka detained off the Indonesian coast, and hopes they will be treated with care and compassion.


According to a Makkal Osai report, he said that while Indonesia had the right to protect its territorial integrity, it was hoped that the government would exercise humanitarianism in dealing with the refugees.


He said these refugees could be subjected to interrogation, torture and possible death if they were sent back to Sri Lanka.


He said that thousands of Tamils were currently languishing in camps in Sri Lanka under depressing social, economic and health conditions.


He said he had sent a memorandum to the Indonesian consular office in Penang asking them to give the Tamil refugees humanitarian treatment. (ANI)
