27 immigrants to be deported

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Twenty-seven of 35 illegal Indonesian immigrants who sought asylum in foreign embassy compounds in Malaysia will be deported, a news report said Thursday.
The immigrants burst into the compounds of the United States, Switzerland, France and Brunei on April 10, claiming they were from Aceh, a province on the tip of Sumatra that is trying to break away from Indonesia.
They claimed they would face persecution if sent back. The eight immigrants not being deported are those who sought refuge in the U.S. compound, where they remain while U.N. officials check out their claims.
Those to be deported will not be prosecuted for intruding into foreign embassy compounds, the national news agency Bernama said.
Fourteen other illegal Indonesian immigrants also await a decision on their fate. The 14 have been at the Kuala Lumpur compound of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees since they rammed a truck through the gates on March 30.
