Tamil asylum seeker family to return to Biloela after Labor win

The Tamil asylum seeker family who had been fighting to return to the Queensland town of Biloela have reacted with “happy tears” at the election result as Labor had promised they could go home.

In contrast, Scott Morrison had ruled out intervening in the case of Priya and Nadesalingam Murugappan and their two Australian-born daughters, saying to do so would effectively give a green light to people smugglers and “the carnage at sea”.

A statement from Angela Fredericks, of the Home To Bilo campaign, said the family were overjoyed by the election result due to what it means for them.

“Mr Albanese has promised to allow our friends Priya, Nades and their girls Kopi and Tharni to return home to Biloela,” she said.

“We just called Priya in Perth and told her she and her family were coming home.
