Video: 250 Tamil asylum seekers on hunger strike, Rudd refuses to budge, Sri Lanka doubts they are even refugees


You may want to read this as well.

Here's a wee bit of logic for you. The closest port to Sri Lanka is Tamil Nadu, India. Not Australia or Indonesia. The UN requires all refugees to register at their closest port of call. These individuals paid over a $1000 each to get on a boat and get to Australia. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that they won't say things are rosy for them in their country of origin. It doesn't take much to realise that a real refugee would not have funds to pay for such a journey either.

Do the math.

Australian journalist who know nothing of Sri Lanka, or of the methods used by close to a million Tamils, in the last 20 years, to leave Sri Lanka for greener pastures, seem to prefer the theory that Tamils are persecuted in Sri Lanka.
