The first boat of asylum seekers the Gillard government hopes to deport to Malaysia under its refugee swap deal are now being held on Christmas Island. Thanks to an injunction in the High Court, they will now remain there until the outcome of a court case is decided on August 22. The first boat of asylum seekers to be sent back under the deal includes 18 children, and as many as 14 unaccompanied minors. The government says there will be no “blanket exemptions” to stop them being sent to fend for themselves in Malaysia.
