Protection gaps: Amnesty International’s concerns to UNHCR’S Standing Committee 8 – 11 March 2005

Within this document, AI raises concerns in regard to the current mass deportation of illegal immigrants from Malaysia, which is expected to affect the protection of large numbers of refugees from Indonesia, Myanmar and other countries. In addition, concerns are raised about the sustainability of return to Burundi and to Rwanda, including concerns about conditions of return. The organization is further concerned about widespread detention practices, often in inadequate conditions, of refugees and asylum seekers in Europe.
