Illegal Entrant kicks baby girl away from Life Jacket after people smugglers boat crashes onto rocks Inquest told.
July 13, 2011
AS a four-year-old girl desperately paddled towards a life jacket amid the wreckage of SIEV 221, a man bobbing in the monstrous Christmas Island swell grabbed it and then kicked her away, an inquest has heard.
Local Australian Federal Police officer, Special Constable Shane Adams, stood on the cliffs at Rocky Point on December 15, trying to help the 89 asylum seekers and three crew members whose boat had smashed into rocks.
He spotted the girl after the boat broke apart trying to dog paddle towards a life jacket he had flung into the sea.
Const Adams said he then noticed a man aged about 35 in the water nearby.
"He reached out and grabbed the life jacket, pushed out with his right foot and struck the young girl on the shoulder, pushing her back," he told the inquest on Christmas Island.
That was the last time Const Adams saw the girl.
Before the boat was torn to pieces amid the backwash at Rocky Point, Const Adam said he saw a woman stretching over the railing of the starboard side of the vessel holding a baby in a nappy.
The woman was screaming, 'take my baby, take my baby.'
It was what Const Adams described as a "freak swell" of about five to six metres which destroyed the wooden vessel and caused the roof to collapse.
Underneath the ship's ruptured verandah lay an elderly man, he said.
Const Adams also told the inquest he stood on the razor-sharp rocks and threw down a rope which a man grabbed hold of, but when the asylum seeker got within 10cm of safety he fell back and was not seen again.
The vessel had originally come near the shore under power but while manoeuvring in the rough seas, a blue drum fell off the boat leaking diesel into the sea.
"In my opinion the vessel had now lost its fuel supply," Const Adams said.
"At the same time the smoke exhaust stack started to puff and then stopped ... and the vessel ceased moving forward."
Fellow AFP officer Constable Brett Ford helped bring the dead bodies ashore at Ethel Beach on the other side of the island.
From about 10.30am, bodies of men, women and children were continually unloaded, Const Ford said.
But soon they ran out of body bags and had to wrap the deceased in black, plastic sheets.
This continued until about 4pm later that day.
Claire O'Connor, the lawyer acting for survivors and the families of dead, told the inquest her clients had nothing but praise for locals who rushed to the cliffs that day.
"Many owe their lives to many of the community members who helped, who pointed out to the navy where people might be in the water and provided medical services," Ms O'Connor said.
"It was far beyond what they were expecting and are extremely grateful."
Earlier in the day, Ms O'Connor put to Sergeant Adam Mack, from the West Australian Water Police who coordinated the search and rescue operations, that a factor in the deaths was the poor condition of the boat which she said was "practically a floating coffin".
Sgt Mack replied: "It was an unseaworthy vessel and did not have the appropriate safety equipment and due to other circumstances it caused the vessel to break down, the motor to lose power and crash into the cliffs."
The inquest before WA Coroner Alastair Hope continues.
Australia: Dr.Suhail Ahmad Khan Durani,Jailed for practicing,Cultural Enrichment aka.Sexual Assault,upon Female patients
July 13, 2011
A PERTH judge says a doctor convicted of sexually assaulting a 'sick and vulnerable"' 19-year-old patient while examining her committed a "despicable" breach of trust.
Suhail Ahmad Khan Durani, 35, was sentenced in the Perth District Court today to two years and four months in prison.
He was convicted last month on three counts of indecently assaulting the woman by grabbing her breasts and two counts of digitally penetrating her without consent.
The offences occurred at Royal Perth Hospital on February 20 last year when the diabetic woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was admitted with high blood sugar levels.
During sentencing submissions, Durani's lawyer George Papamihail asked for a suspended prison sentence, arguing that there were ``exceptional circumstances'' for his client who had already suffered a ``universal fall from grace''.
``He's lost his profession for all time,'' he said
Mr Papamihail said there had not been any other allegations made against his client and the offence was out of character.
He said Durani was not likely to reoffend, so it was ``doubtful'' that a prison sentence would help with any rehabilitation and would only negatively impact on Durani's wife.
``She will be left financially and socially destitute,'' he said.
However, prosecutor Paul Yovich argued that Durani's circumstances were ``not sufficiently exceptional'' to grant a suspended sentence.
While he accepted that Durani's wife and young son were ``innocent victims'', Mr Yovich said they were victims of Durani's conduct and not the law, which had an obligation to deal with Durani.
He said Durani could still apply, at a later date, to become a registered doctor again.
In sentencing, Judge Allan Fenbury said the woman was in hospital due to ``personal neglect'' of her diabetes but had trusted that Durani was carrying out legitimate medical examinations of her rather than seeking sexual gratification.
``Your conduct in pretending to professionally examine and then take sexual advantage of a sick and vulnerable young woman seeking medical treatment was quite despicable,'' he said.
The woman only realised what was happening when Durani tried to kiss her, the judge said.
Judge Fenbury told Durani the effect of his conviction and sentence would be ``obviously catastrophic'' for him and his young family, who have only lived in Australia for three years, having moved from India.
However, he said the fact that Durani did not plead guilty to the charges, and instead required a trial, meant he had to take that into consideration in sentencing him.
``It cannot be said that you are remorseful,'' he said.
Judge Fenbury noted that Durani had several character reference letters from doctors who expressed ``disappointment'' at Durani's conviction, as well as 11 other people who made themselves available by telephone.
``Clearly you were well regarded by your colleagues in the medical profession,'' he said.
Judge Fenbury said Durani had no previous criminal record and had dedicated his life to helping the ill before this incident.
``I have no reason to doubt you were very good at what you did,'' he said.
However, Judge Fenbury said the crime committed was ``too serious'' to warrant a suspended prison sentence.
``Along with your liberty, you stand to lose your livelihood and family home,'' he said.
``Your wife will have to battle on without a husband in a place where she has no family.
``Your son will also have limited access to his father.''
Outside court, Mr Papamihail told reporters his client maintained his innocence and had instructed him to appeal the conviction.
Mr Papamihail said it was not fair for a measure of a man to be made based on one event.
``It's not a matter of me being personally affected,'' he said.
``For every client that I act for, if they tell me that they're innocent, it's important.''
Durani will be eligible for parole after serving 14 months.

A NATIONAL day of protest demanding the burqa be banned has raised fears it could provoke Cronulla riot-style hysteria.
Almost 14,000 people have signed up for Monday's "Ban the Burqa Day", which urges protesters to wear a balaclava or mask.
But Islamic leaders labelled the event racist.
Organiser Kye Keating, 20, instigated the protest with two friends via Facebook after Sydney woman Carnita Matthews used her burqa to quash a jail sentence for deliberately making a false statement to police.
"This event is not aimed at race, it is not aimed at religion," Mr Keating said.
"It is just aimed at concealing your identity in a public place. If everyone is not allowed to do it, no one should be allowed to do it."
Mr Keating, a former hospitality student from Victoria looking for work, has been surprised by interest in the event.
Even an elderly nursing home resident will be among protesters going about with their faces covered.
"It's not so much about adopting our culture and completely dropping your own," Mr Keating said.
"It is just making those slight little changes that make it easier for you to become an Aussie."
The furore comes after the Baillieu Government revealed this month it would investigate if there was a need in Victoria for laws, being adopted in other states, that empower police to force Muslim women wearing a full veil to reveal their faces.
Islamic Council of Victoria director Nazeem Hussain said that fewer than 3000 Muslim women who wore burqas in Australia had no problem taking the garment off for police, who have power to demand identification.
"This kind of mass demonstration, this mass show of intolerance is just that," Mr Hussain said. "I would say it's hysteria reminiscent of Cronulla."
Muslim community spokesman Keysar Trad said women chose to wear the burqa for religious observance, not to hide their identity. "All I see beneath that call is bigotry and intolerance," Mr Trad said.
Liberal backbencher Bernie Finn, who supports banning the burqa in some places for security reasons, said people were entitled to express concerns about the garment.

“A NATIONAL day of protest demanding the burqa be banned has raised fears it could provoke Cronulla riot-style hysteria” Interesting there is no one concerned about another week of State Government sanctioned Intifada, and can someone tell me again what RACE IS the Burqah again?
