AUSTRALIA’S ABBOTT PROPOSES BUYING ‘SMUGGLER’ BOATS

0

SYDNEY: The frontrunning candidate in Australia’s election, Tony Abbott, would pay Indonesians for unseaworthy boats to stop them from ending up with people-smugglers. Abbott, who is leading Prime Minister Kevin Rudd in opinion polls ahead of the September 7 vote, said he would step up on-the-ground operations in Indonesia with a “community outreach” scheme aimed at disrupting people-smuggling rings.
