289 Signatures Goal: 500

VOICES OF DETAINED REFUGEES Bangkok, on the 26th of August 2007 \"Dear Sir or Madam, We are Sri Lankan refugees and want to bring to your attention the fact that we are writing this letter from Bangkok Immigration Detention Centre. We were recognized as refugees by UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) at various dates. Some of us have been detained since more than 1 year, meanwhile 19 children including 7 aged 1 to 3 years, 11 women on a total of 58 refugees are currently imprisoned. Thailand immigration arrested us for overstay, as we could not extend the duration of our visa to stay legally in this country. Since the 11th of April 2007, we did not receive any visits from UNHCR, we later learnt that UNHCR is not allowed to visit us. We heard a few days ago that the files of the majority of us had been submitted by UNHCR to various third countries
