After Boat Sinks, Human-Smuggler Fights Extradition to Australia

AN ALLEGED people smuggler accused of organising a boat that sank with the loss of more than 350 lives is fighting his extradition to Australia.

Iraq-born Maythem Radhi is sought by the Australian Government over the notorious SIEV X boat, which sank in 2001 on its way from Indonesia to Australia.

His extradition was ordered in March but his legal team is appealing against the decision in the High Court in Auckland.
