The Malaysia government will look into Sri Lanka's request to have all Sri Lankan prisoners in Malaysia be deported to their country of origin, the Bernama news reported yesterday (21).

Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister Dr. Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who is also Home Minister, said the Sri Lankan authority was still negotiating the matter with their Malaysian counterparts as there were 38 Sri Lankan prisoners currently serving their time in Malaysia under the Immigration Act, with 12 others still being held on remand.

"These 50 Sri Lankan nationals were mostly arrested for overstaying in Malaysia or probably for committing other offences under the Immigration Act," he told the Malaysian media in Colombo yesterday (21).

Dr Ahmad Zahid said the Malaysian Government had extended an official invitation to Sri Lanka President Maithripala Sirisena to visit Malaysia in December.
