AUSTRALIA SEEKS EXTRADITION OF SUSPECTED PEOPLE
26 April 2003
The Federal Government says it will try to extradite the alleged people smuggler Abu Quassey, who's been deported from Indonesia to Egypt. Quassey is alleged to have organised the voyage of the vessel known as 'Siev X', which sank on its way to Australia from Indonesia in October 2001. The 353 people on board from Afghanistan and Iraq drowned. Earlier attempts to extradite Quassey from Indonesia failed.
