|Subject: Indonesia: Rescued asylum seekers refuse to leave ship Mon Apr 09, 2012 11:19 am|| |
|Indonesian officials were last night trying to talk a group of about 120 asylum seekers off the ship that rescued them as their boat sank on the way to Australia.|
The people, from Iran and Afghanistan, were returned to Indonesia after they were rescued from their sinking boat by a Singapore-registered tanker, Hernia. But in an incident reminiscent of the Oceanic Viking stand-off in 2009, they are refusing to leave the vessel.
"The people do not want to get off the ship because they want to be in Australia," said a spokesman for Indonesia's director-general of immigration.

Water police said the asylum seekers were found in the Sunda Strait, near the island of Panaitan, but accounts differed last night about whether they were within Indonesian territorial waters, or in international waters, when their boat sank.
Joko, an officer with the search and rescue agency, told the Herald they had received a call from an emergency beacon about 5.30am on Sunday and dispatched the nearest ship to rescue the asylum seekers.
