Sri Lanka is battling the worst economic crisis in its history and that’s pushing increasingly desperate people to risk a boat journey to Australia. More than a thousand people have tried to make the long and dangerous voyage in the past year and the Australian Government has tried to crack down on it with a suite of measures. But 7.30 has uncovered claims that one key tool to combat people smuggling can be easily dodged, while local officials are investigating people with political links for alleged involvement in people smuggling.
