    RESUMEN Confessions of a People-Smuggler

    Dawood Amiri is an ethnic Hazara who, as a young man, made the fateful decision to flee the terror being inflicted on his people, and seek asylum in Australia. He arrived in Indonesia in 2010, but was eventually captured when he was about to board a boat headed for Christmas Island. After a long stint in detention, where immigration processes failed to help him, he escaped and began working for people-smugglers to aid his fellow asylum-seekers, and to raise money for his own passage to Australia.

    Amiri was eventually arrested as a people-smuggler himself, after having helped gather passengers for a boat that was recklessly overloaded by his bosses and sank en route to Christmas Island, with the loss of 96 lives.

    Among the dead were two of Amiri’s best friends; that day, he ‘swore at God’. He was sentenced to six years’ jail in Jakarta’s Cipinang prison, while the kingpins, at the time, remained free.

    A revelatory tale of compassion, love, sacrifice, and survival, Confessions of a People-Smuggler is a surprising insight into the desperation of asylum-seekers and the economics of the highly organised people-smuggling industry, as well as the corruption that has enabled it.

    PRAISE FOR DAWOOD AMIRI

    ‘[A] compelling memoir that offers insight into a fraught situation.’ The Sun-Herald

    ‘Kevin Rudd dubbed people like Dawood Amiri "the absolute scum of the earth". Now Amiri puts his side of the story. It's far different from the one our politicians would have us believe … What a pity such a decent and talented person who tried to help the desperate will probably never get to Australia himself.’ The Saturday Paper
