More than 150 asylum seekers are facing a period of uncertainty on the high seas in an Australian customs vessel while their fate is decided in the High Court.

Before the High Court makes its decision, the Abbott government has promised to give 72 hours notice in writing if it intends to hand the asylum seekers to Sri Lankan authorities.

Dragana Mrkaja speaks to Australian Human Rights Commission President, Gillian Triggs, and University of Melbourne International Refugee Law Research Program Director, Michelle Foster, about the asylum seekers waiting in anticipation.
