The Immigration Department (ImmD) carried out a repatriation operation today (November 29). A total of 24 Vietnamese illegal immigrants were repatriated to Vietnam. The persons removed comprised 11 men and 13 women, all of which were unsubstantiated non-refoulement claimants. Among them were discharged prisoners who had committed criminal offences and had been sentenced to imprisonment.
The ImmD will remain committed to expediting the removal process to repatriate illegal immigrants and overstayers from Hong Kong as soon as practicable according to the actual situation through appropriate measures as necessary.
