EIGHT OVERSTAYERS AND TWO IIs HELD IN RAIDS
Seven men and three women were arrested in raids on 21 flats by police and immigration officers aiming to catch absconding abode seekers. Eight had overstayed two-way permits and the others were illegal immigrants. They were all repatriated to the mainland. Since the grace period for abode claimants expired in March, 2,680 who have lost their legal claims have been repatriated.
