Ben Hillier from the Tamil Refugee Council condemning an early morning raid of Tamil refugee family

The Tamil Refugee Council has condemned an early morning raid in which a refugee family was given just ten minutes to gather belongings before being flown to Melbourne and detained at the Broadmeadows detention centre (MITA – Melbourne Immigration Transit Accommodation). Priya, her husband Nadesalingam and their daughters – 9-month-old Dharuniga and 2-year-old Kopiga, born in Australia – were woken at their home in Biloela, central Queensland, by scores of police, Border Force officers and Serco guards.

To find out more about the situation Indymedia’s Raymond Grenfell spoke to Ben Hillier from the Tamil Refugee Council.
