Sirul to be deported from Australia after Court rejects his asylum bid

Australian laws prohibit the extradition of anyone to face the death penalty in his home country.

In 2009, Sirul and accomplice Azilah Hadri were convicted of murdering Altantuya and were sentenced to death.

She had also been having an affair with Mr Abdul Baginda Razak, a close confidante of Najib, who was Malaysia's deputy prime minister at the time.

Shaariibuu was reportedly blown up with military grade explosives in a forest on the outskirts of Malaysia's capital in 2006 in a case shrouded in mystery 13 years later.

He and Azilah were serving as members of Najib's personal security detail at the time of the murder, but the question of who ordered the killing has never been answered.

In Malaysia, police have reopened Altantuya's murder investigation while her family has finally succeeded in getting their civil suit over her death to trial.

Sirul has previously offered to tell all if he is granted a full pardon by Malaysian authorities.

Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX:WEED) Up +9.52% Wednesday
Zurcher Kantonalbank Zurich Cantonalbank's holdings in Canopy Growth were worth $903,000 at the end of the most recent quarter. 8,764,163 shares changed hands during mid-day trading, a decline of 30% from the average session volume of 12,477,415 shares.

There had also been speculation the woman was murdered to prevent her from speaking about the alleged bribery during the submarine deal.

A source was quoted by a local news portal as saying the media advisor to the embattled former premier was charged in absentia involving a sum said to be around RM15 million.

According to ABC News, a tribunal in Sydney, Australia, on Monday dismissed Sirul's appeal, upholding their previous rejection of his bid for political asylum.

Citing an associate of Sirul's who wished to remain anonymous, it said the tribunal rejected his initial claim on grounds that his offence was not a political crime.

Sirul was arrested and has been held in an Australian immigration detention centre since January 2015, after fleeing Malaysia shortly before the verdict was handed down.

"There are serious reasons for considering that the applicant committed in Malaysia a serious non-political crime before entering Australia", the tribunal ruled.

It found no suggestion "that a state-ordered assassination would amount to a political crime", ABC said. Australia has not returned him because he is facing the death penalty.
