Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has written to Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (MDMK) general secretary Vaiko informing him that the Centre would be in touch with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in order to facilitate the resettlement of a group of Sri Lankan Tamils in UAE.

Mr. Vaiko had written to Dr. Singh, saying that if the 19 Tamils were deported to Sri Lanka, they would be tortured there.

The Prime Minister said in his letter that the UNHCR had already arranged resettlement in third countries for some of the Tamils in the group.

The Union government would remain in touch with the UAE authorities to facilitate the process to the extent possible, the Prime Minister added. (Source: The Hindu)

    I have not heard UAE giving status for any one, it seems to be strange. Anyway Sri Lanka is safer than any Arab countries.

    chams Tuesday, 23 April 2013 05:37 AM

    Mr.Singh,Why don't you do the same thing to all our politicians too? Great help!

    abr Tuesday, 23 April 2013 04:04 AM

    Prime minister Singh cant you take in these 19 so called refugees and settle them in tamil nadu rather than asking another country U.A.E to give them refuge.

    Yuri Tuesday, 23 April 2013 04:04 AM

    What make to consider Sri Lanka is not safe place to Tamils? you should know SL is Buddhist nation where only Peace

    Saradial Tuesday, 23 April 2013 03:50 AM
