ASIO Refugees

If you have come to this site to find out how you can help Sasi and other ASIO Refugees - thank you!

Sasikanthan Shanmugarayah has been in detention since December 2009.

His Protection Visa application is waiting for the Minister's signature.  Minister Burke can approve his visa during caretaker period.

If the Coalition win the election, it is unlikely Sasi's visa will be approved.

In that circumstance, and to assist the other 50 refugees, we need to continue to ask the government to release the refugees into community detention.

You can find out more about Sasi and the issue by reading many of the pieces below including my travel blog to Sri Lanka in March 2013.

I have also written six articles on New Matilda 

You can also watch the 7:30 Report  piece on Sasi.

You will find about three air-ports where outsiders can easily enter Vietnam: Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh Town, and also Da Nang. Ahead of outsiders can easily enter the country by way of these types of air-ports, they must obtain a Vietnam Visa. A new Vietnam carte visa becomes necessary for some outsiders to help gain access to enter and also depart Vietnam. People to the country should be aware of the cost of a new visa.
