French Couple At Mirihana Detention Camp

Sep 16, 2010 6:36:44 AM - thesundayleader.lk

A French couple arrested for overstaying their visas will remain at the Mirihana Detention camp until they are repatriated, police spokesman Prishantha Jayakody confirmed.

The couple were arrested on Monday in Galle. Their visas were only valid until September 4. When they failed to satisfy police queries, they were remanded until September 23.

The French embassy has been contacted, Jayakody said, and the couple would remain in detention until they returned to their country. The 23 year old female is from Madagascar, and is reportedly pregnant.

Jayakody said this was the normal procedure for those tourists found overstaying their visa.
