A Tamil refugee, who was deemed to be a national security risk, had her newly born son taken away from her as she faced prolonged detention at the Villawood Detention Centre in Australia. Speaking to CNN, the woman’s husband, identified only as Ganesh, described how Baby Paari was taken away from his wife Ranjini a few hours after he was born on Tuesday. Ranjini was granted refugee status by Australia in 2011 along with her two boys aged 6 and 9. In May 2012 however, the family was summoned to a meeting with immigration officials and were told that Australia’s security intelligence organisation had given Ranjini a “negative assessment”, with no legal right to appeal.
