Around 300 Sri Lankans are to be deported from the United Kingdom to Sri Lanka on June 16, Tamil Mirror online learns.

Sources in the UK told Tamil Mirror that the UK Border Agency had arranged a special charter flight to deport around 300 persons whose asylum requests had been turned down by the authorities.

Mr. Nishan Paramjorthy, a human rights advocate in the UK told Tamil Mirror online that some of his clients had got notice about their “removal” from the UK Border Agency.   He said most of the persons to be deported were Tamils.

The scheduled time of departure of the special charter flight to Sri Lanka, from the UK, is 5.00 pm on June 16, according to the sources.

Tens of thousands of Sri Lankan Tamils migrated to the UK during the war between the security forces and the LTTE; and an estimated 120,000 Sri Lankan Tamils live in the UK. The Sri Lankan Tamil Diaspora in the UK is the second largest after that of Canada.

    But today all most all are in the soup!

    malkanthi Thursday, 09 June 2011 04:51 AM

    It is sad we don't realise the circumstances under which they fled the country. For the innocent the war was between life and death. If same fate befall on us, wonder what action we would take?

    sajitha Friday, 10 June 2011 03:30 AM

    So this means Milliband will loose 300 votes?

    Konde Bendapuchhena Thursday, 09 June 2011 04:55 AM

    Keep them there ,you need more people to gather for anti Sri Lankan demonstrations

    LOl Thursday, 09 June 2011 05:09 AM

    well said.. people who are making comments welcoming this news or blame who seek asylums are really without common sense. Not a human...

    LOL Thursday, 09 June 2011 05:13 AM

    300 is very small compare with 150000 in UK to demonstrations. even if those 300 are in UK, it wont make any difference...

    madawa Thursday, 09 June 2011 05:29 AM

    please keep them in Uk please, when another 10 years down the line we can see feedom fighters in London. cant wait till that day.

    Abdul Thursday, 09 June 2011 05:34 AM

    We don't have enough space in welfare camps, send them to Norway

    B.R.Fernando Thursday, 09 June 2011 05:37 AM
