“Very tall and very muscly” Iranian Reza BeratiÂ may have been singled out during the riot because of his size, reports the “Guardian”, (a commie rag).
“The family expressed their wish to have the body returned home for burial arrangements,”Â immigration minister Scott Morrison said.
Just a reminder:
The UNHCR distinguishes between refugees and asylum seekers, with the following definitions:
Refugees include individuals recognized under the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees; its 1967 Protocol; the 1969 OAU Convention Governing the Specific Aspects of Refugee Problems in Africa; those recognised in accordance with the UNHCR Statute; individuals granted complementary forms of protection(45); or, those enjoying temporary protection(46). The refugee population also includes people in a refugee-like situation.(47)
Asylum-seekers (with “pending cases”) are individuals who have sought international protection and whose claims for refugee status have not yet been determined. Those covered in this report refer to claimants whose individual applications were pending at the end of 2012, irrespective of when they may have been lodged.
Even Bob Carr got this right:
Iranian boat people are “economic migrants”, said Bob Carr to a dismayed Green alliance not accustomed to hearing the truth from its Labor partners. Most of the trouble seen in detention centres is from anÂ influx of well-shod Iranian arrivals who believed the smugglers’ tales of a Southern Shangri La where free money falls like manna, if you promise not to work.
Scott Morrison should skip the “processing” bullshit and put them all on a plane back to Teheran tomorrow.
Even our estranged Indonesian “friends” cancelled Iranian visas, but still they arrived courtesy of the super-salesman smuggler and artless Labor/Green naivete.
Despite Western sanctions Iran has developed from the grand old Persia into a 10,000 year-old culture-rich modern nation with the highest urban growth rate in the World.
