News: Vietnamese detainees returned to Ho Chi Minh City
23 October 2013 - The Australian Government returned 28 illegal maritime arrival (IMA) detainees to Vietnam with the flight arriving in Ho Chi Minh City in the early morning.
The removal of these detainees to Vietnam is consistent with Australia’s international obligations. Ten of the detainees chose to return voluntarily.
“This latest return operation of IMAs is a further demonstration of the new Australian Government’s determination to implement its policies and sends a strong message that if you arrive by boat, you will not get a visa to remain in Australia,” Minister for Immigration and Border Protection, Scott Morrison, said today.
