British Immigration officials state that some 60 Lankan asylum seekers in UK will be deported to Sri Lanka on Tuesday the 23rd of October.

According to media accounts it has been found that the asylum seekers did not possess valid travel documents and had been staying in the UK for several years with various fake documents, such as student visas and job permits.

A special chartered plane has been arranged to transport the 60 Lankan's with the escort of the British officials.

However, several Tamil organizations and Human Rights activists in London have protested against the move by the British immigration officials.
