Australia (again!): Iraqi refugee sentenced in human trafficking case

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.

New Zealand: Knife-wielding Somali refugee given light sentence

He said he was sorry and the judge had sympathy for him.

From 3News (Christchurch):

The knife-wielding Somali refugee who went on a stabbing rampage in Christchurch in March has been sentenced to six-and-a-half years in prison.

Judge David Saunders handed down the sentence at the Christchurch District Court which includes the provision that he must serve half his prison term before being eligible for parole.

Zakariye Mohammed Hussein, 27, began his crime spree at Redwood Primary School in the early hours of March 15 where he threatened two staff with a knife.

Visit the story and read about his carjacking and slashing spree.

He will be eligible for parole in three and a half years!

Judge Saunders gave him a discount for his depression, remorse, personal circumstances and guilty pleas.

He was initially charged with attempted murder but police dropped that charge in June.

Hussein will be eligible for parole in three-and-half-years.

But, no mention of deportation…hmmmm!
