    Your posting record would suggest otherwise.

    I imagine they're not great supporters of China and its totalitarian policies

    I don't think many of them would be asylum seekers.

    Although the article might be an April Fool's joke: "Victoria [sic!] has deported 20 people as the state cracks down on gang violence in its cities and towns (pictured, Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton)". Were they "deported" to NSW

    I also learned from this article that she came to Australia from Russia in 1997 to claim refugee status...wow! Wondering which part of Russia she was a refugee from? I would rather not live in Russia given a choice ...but other than Chechnia - no other areas in the country where people were supposed to ''escape while fearing for life''...unless we accept that every person who lives in a 3d world country has a right to come here in search of better life .

    May be its good time now to write to department of Immigration to enquire!

    The article just says that she claimed political asylum, not that she was a refugee. I suspect the claim was bogus (given her other claims), but considering the Russian dissidents who have been killed by Putin, it's not completely ridiculous.

    1997 Putin was not even in power.
    Re Putin I dislike him but I do not think he goes around killing ordinary people. And if ''bogus' claims succeed - it raises the question is ''should not we improve our check ups'' so it does not happen in future and fakeugees fail to stay in in Australia?

    Russia was and is not a good country to live in (in my view anyway) however it is no reason for all Russians to be invited to move to Australia

    I was using Putin as an example of FSB practices. Although he did become head of the FSB the year after she left, so she may have escaped just in time!

    The article doesn't say that she was granted political asylum, only that she claimed it. And her husband apparently worked in a law firm in Russia, so he could have been a target of the government.

    LOL. Yea...that's what they claim...I think it shows where these ''fakeugees'' are coming from. And of course Australia will not protect Assange cause if he is forwarded to the USA and facing death sentence...surely its not political...

    I think double standards are rather obvious.

    Why do you waste your time, which you claim to value, reading such rubbish?

    I found it a rather entertaining read. Or is it not true? There was no such court case? May be we should also have government agency suggesting what to read and what not to read.

    Ever heard of Sergei Leonidovich Magnitsky, a Russian lawyer who was arrested and died in prison after implicating Russian officials?

    Assange can't be extradited to the US from the UK and face the death penalty - the relevant extradition treaty doesn't permit it.
