CANBERRA, Australia, Sept 14 ( – An Australian government investigation cleared its own immigration officials of any wrongdoing in the expulsion of a nine month pregnant Chinese woman who begged for refuge saying that as it was her second child she would be forced to abort in China.

The finding is no vindication for the officials since the same government investigators are known to have accepted at face value the claims of the Chinese State Family Planning Commission claiming that no forced abortions take place. There has been solid evidence that the woman was forced to have her second child killed.
