Now it seems we are paying the people smugglers to go back to Indonesia.

How long before they just load up a boat of their mates and head out to sea to be paid $5000 each to turn around.

God this Government are stuffing useless.

Tony Abbott does not deny Australia paid people smugglers to turn back asylum seeker boats

Prime Minister Tony Abbott has not denied Australia paid people smugglers to turn around an asylum seeker boat.
 
The Prime Minister also refused to offer a view about whether such a method would be unacceptable and would not commit to an investigation.

Prime Minister Tony Abbott refused to say whether he condoned the idea of Australia paying people smugglers to turn boats around.
 
Fairfax Media this week revealed passengers and an Indonesian police chief have claimed border protection officials paid people smugglers to return asylum seekers interecepted north of Australia en route to New Zealand.

Indonesia is now investigating claims that crew members of a boat were paid $5000 each to turn around.

Only a moron like Abbott could think using taxpayers' money to pay off international organised crime is a good idea :facepalm.

Geez, I wonder what they will do with the money we are giving them, Tony? I'm sure it won't be funneled into other international criminal enterprises such as drug and weapons trafficking and of course to terrorist groups ::).

The word I'm getting is that this was organised by the Chinese government to dis-stabilize the Aust government.

Watch the boats start up again.


Manus Island detainees' $70m compensation settlement approved
A compensation deal from the Australian Government worth $70 million for 1,300 current and former detainees on Manus Island has been approved by Victoria's Supreme Court.
The group of asylum seekers and refugees were compensated for being illegally detained between 2012 and 2016, for negligence in how the Government housed and protected them.

The deal is the largest human rights settlement in Australian legal history.
