Asylum seekers in Medan wish to be sent to Australia Asylum seekers including the Rohingyas from Myanmar now being accommodated in Medan, North Sumatra, have asked for their dispatch to Australia or New Zealand.One of the Rohingya refugees, M Habib (32), said here on Tuesday that he did not care where he would be taken to as the most important thing was leaving the present temporary shelter.

"For us the important thing is leaving the present shelter," he said. He said it would all be up to the UNHCR that has so far taken care of them. He said the Rohingyas were not interested in money but clear status and countries that are willing to assure their security.

Habib said they have so far been declared as refugees but no country has been willing to accept them after leaving conflict in their home country. "It is impossible to return to Myanmar as his mother, brothers and sisters and other families have all left following the clash. Relatives have also died," he said.

Tens of Rohingyas recently visited the UNHCR office on Jalan Babura Lama in Medan to demand for their immediate dispatch to Australia or other countries.

Another Rohingya refugee, Zaid Husein (28) said he could not stop wondering why the UNHCR office in Medan did not care about the Myanmarese refugees living in the shelter on Pasar II, Jaln Jamin Gintin, numbering in the hundred who have been living there for four years.

Refugees from Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Iran who have stayed in the shelter for more than a year meanwhile have all asked to be sent to Australia and New Zealand. "The UNHCR`s inaction was regrettable as the Rohingyas have long been staying in Medan and hoping to be sent to a foreign country," Husein said.

Minister condemns prison attack in Sleman Law and Human Rights Minister Amir Syamsudin condemned the attack on Cebongan prison in Slaman, Yoyakarta, that killed four detainees at the wee hours on Saturday.

"The attackers are cruel people. They have damaged state facilities, attacked state apparatus and killed people cruelly," the minister said when he visited the prison on Saturday noon.

Around 17 armed men raided the Cebongan prison in the district of Sleman, Yogyakarta, early on Saturday and killed four inmates and wounded several wardens.

"As a minister of law and human rights I expressed my deep condolences to the victims` families and offered my apology for the failure of my personnel to protect them," he said when inspecting the penitentiary after the incident.

He expressed hope that law enforcers, in this case Yogyakarta police, would soon investigate and uncover the assailants who attacked wardens and cruelly killed four detainees. The minister said he had heard complete explanations on the chronology of the incident but he would not give details too far.

"We do not want to cause distortion in the (police) efforts to enforce the law. We only ask law enforcers to be serious and transparent. This is not a simple case as this happens for the first time in Indonesia," the minister said. He said law enforcers must investigate it first and no one may speculate on which group the perpetrators belong to.

"We hope that all sides would hold themselves and would not speculate," he said. The incident occurred following a clash in Hugo`s Cafe in the district days before that led to the death of a member of Army special force Kopassus.

The chief of the Yogyakarta regional police command, Brigadier General Sabar Rahardjo, said the four killed were "those involved in the clash in Hugo`s Cafe several days ago."
