Sri Lanka’s prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe are promising returning refugees that they won’t face prosecution, even though they have broken the laws by trying to flee. Mr. Wickremesinghe announced the decision standing next to the Australian prime minister Malcolm Turnbull in Canberra. Australia has received a lot of refugees from Sri Lanka, and many have been sent to highly criticized refugee camps. Sri Lanka’s acceptance of returning refugees comes as good news for Australia who has recently been told by Papua New Guinea, that a Australian detention center there has to close. Likewise US president Donald Trump has signalled that he will not take over refugees from Australia.
