Returned asylum-seekers tortured in Sri Lanka

September 4, 2010

Three Sri Lankan men (Sumith Mendis and his brother Indika Mendis, and Lasantha Wijeratne) were deported from Australia back to Sri Lanka, subsequently arrested and tortured in custody.  All three are reportedly at risk of further torture.  Please write to the Sri Lankan government and ask them to protect the men from any further torture, investigate their reported torture and hold accountable anyone found responsible.  Thanks.

Update:  an online action is now available on this case.
