GOVERNMENT
'Abu Quassey Under Constant Scrutiny'

10 July 2002

Smuggler known to agents ~ Russell Skelton (Age)

  • Abu Quassey, the people smuggler who organised the boat on which 353 asylum seekers drowned, was under constant scrutiny by an Australian intelligence agency before and after the doomed boat's departure from Indonesia last year.

    Documents released by Defence Minister Senator Robert Hill this week reveal that an intelligence unit within the Immigration Department filed nearly 50 reports on Quassey's activities over three months leading up to the boat's departure on October 18.

  • Ship them out ~ Tim Salmon (Letter to SMH)
    • So a leaky boat carrying more than 200 people has run aground on a nearby island territory, huh? Heard that one before. May our proud border protectors tow these queue-jumpers back out to sea and send them on their way.

    • DID THE Australian government contribute to the deaths of 300 women and children? No, but that hasn't stopped some anonymous garbage from claiming so on one of the most repellent websites you'll ever see.
