The asylum claim submitted by the chief witness of the White Flag case Senior Journalist Fedrica Jansz has been turned down by the Government of Australia.

According to the Brisbane Times Jansz who had submitted her asylum claim via the Australian High Commission in Colombo had requested for asylum based on humanitarian grounds.

Moreover according to Australian immigration officials Jansz's claim was rejected since they had deemed she did not face persecution in Sri Lanka.
