Another missing Asylum Seeker boat

October 22, 2012

There has been news coming from our fellows in Indonesia, that an Asylum Seeker boat carrying 24 passengers is believed to have gone missing.. Initial information from our sources suggests that the boat departed from somewhere near Jakarta on 12th of August, and was heading to Christmas Island, an Australian territory. It was 12th of August when the last contact with on board passengers were made and since than no one has heard of them.

[Updated]: Speaking to apparently close relatives of the missing asylum seekers, now we are certain and can confirm that the aforementioned boat is missing and no one has heard of on board passengers since its departure from Jakarta on 12th of August.

However, mainstream media have not reported this would-be tragedy yet, neither we heard any comment from Australian Maritime Safety Authority.

Following are the pictures of Asylum Seekers, who are said to be on board that particular boat.

    im a close friend of one of the passengers on the twelfth August boat and live in Sweden.
    To all my dear Hazara brothers who are worried and waiting for good news from their loved ones: do not sit and wait for each other, you have to take action into your own hands and contact the media in australia. I know that some of you have applied to red cross and unicf but you know that they can not do much. As mr Ehsan said ,maybe they are in need of immediately help now. until we have not withdrawn the media and Australian authorities they will not serch after them. plz, be together then everything is possible. thanks/zikria

      Salam dear frieands!
      His real name is Hadi but possibly Yones and his wife Akela. Today I talked to my mom in pakistan and she said that she had talked to another lady who was worried about her husband. it is not certain that he was in the same boat, but he was missing since 12 of agust. He called home and spoke with his wife, that he is fine and in a prison and there are several hundred other people who do not have access to any type of phone. he called only for a few seconds from a mob belonging to a polic after he had been crying a lot and asked.
      He had said the name of the island but it is difficult to remember for an old lady. I really hope this is true and our family and friends are fine and somewhere in good hands.
      Thanks/ zikria
