We have just gotten word that the Federal Magistrates Court has found that it has no jurisdiction to hear these appeals.  The case of the first Tamil asylum seeker has now been taken to the High Court but we have not received any indication of when a decision will be made or if the Australian Government will honour these legal proceedings.

This means that there is a real danger of a deportation going ahead today.

If you are able to make it to the Perth Immigration Detention Centre (at the corners of McComb and Baker Roads, next to the Perth Domestic Airport), please do so ASAP.

Updates will be posted as they become available.
