A Sri Lankan asylum seeker has been ordered for deportation next week, despite the United Nations committee against torture requesting Australia not to move him.
The deportation order issued for the Lankan asylum seeker by the Australian Border Force says he will be deported on 22 February.
The Guardian reported he will not be permitted any visitors at the airport when he is removed and will be escorted on his flight to Colombo. However he has refused to sign the order.
In October last year the UN committee against torture issued an interim measure request, formally asking that Australia refrain from returning the individual to Sri Lanka while his complaint is under consideration.
