, Index number: ASA 28/028/2003

Seven asylum seekers from Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam (NAD) province in Indonesia have reportedly been beaten by camp guards while in detention at the Langkap Detention Camp in Perak State. It is understood that the asylum seekers have refused to be repatriated. One of the seven is a woman whose 13-month-old child is also detained in the camp. They are at risk of being forcibly returned to NAD, where they would be at serious risk of human rights violations.
