Australia (again!): Iraqi refugee sentenced in human trafficking case
Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 20, 2012
He was a former refugee who had gained Australian citizenship and was probably encouraging his kids to hold signs like these (behead the infidels)!
From ABC News Australia:
A former Iraqi refugee has been sentenced to more than 11 years in jail for people smuggling.
The Victorian County Court heard Ali Haidari, 37, arrived in Australia on a boat carrying asylum seekers and then used his contacts to organise passage for families.
He pleaded guilty to three charges of people smuggling and one count of trafficking an estimated $1.5 million worth of methamphetamine.
Haidari charged asylum seekers between US$8,000 and US$10,000 for the trip to Australia.
The court heard Haidari was a Kurd who had fled Iraq and Iran and then sought asylum in Australia after a childhood of persecution and violence. [And, LOL! they believed him!-–ed]
He was granted a protection visa after four months in detention and became a citizen in 2000.
People smuggling and drug running and he will be eligible for parole in only eight years!
Haidari will serve minimum of eight years’ jail before being eligible for parole.
No mention of deportation here either.
You know what I would like to see—asylum lawyers being made responsible for their clients actions. Imagine if these lawyers (we have loads of them as ‘ambulance chasers’ on our southern border waiting for the supposed “asylum seekers” to arrive so that they can advise them on how to proceed to con immigration judges) were made responsible for crimes committed by their clients. That would put a chill on this asylum industry in a heart beat.
