People smuggling venture returned to sri lanka
The Australian Government continues its close cooperation with the Sri Lankan Government to disrupt people smuggling ventures departing Sri Lanka.
On 26th November a people smuggling venture carrying 38 Sri Lankan nationals attempting to travel illegally by boat to Australia was successfully disrupted.
Minister for Immigration and Border Protection, Scott Morrison said there are only two outcomes for people who travel illegally by boat to Australia.
They will be intercepted and either turned back, or sent to another country, either Papua New Guinea or Nauru, for processing and resettlement in that country and resettlement in Australia is not an option.
