Conned …

Amnesty International has admitted being ‘conned’ into helping the Sydney siege gunman to get a refugee visa in Australia.

The admission comes after News Limited obtained a letter from a refugee coordinator at Amnesty to the Department of Immigration which urged the government to issue Monis refugee status believing he was a top-level Iranian spy.

The letter which dated back to April 1997 argued that Monis would be at risk if he was forced to return to Iran.

Monis’ application was subsequently approved in 2001.

Amnesty International refugee coordinator Dr Graham Thom told News Limited that they aid group was duped.

I wonder how hard it is to do that … ?
