Well they're very, very genuine concerns at present as to the status of the 800 people who are to be sent by Australia to Malaysia. There's concern about the status of asylum seekers in Malaysia generally, but there's concern about the status of the 800 to be sent.

Tommy Lee Jones

In the U.S., you even lose legal rights if you store your data in a company's machines instead of your own.
