Indonesia : 10 years jail for alleged people smuggler

Indonesian prosecutors want a 10-year jail term for the man allegedly behind a doomed asylum seeker boat voyage to Australia.

Pakistani man Hasan Billu is accused of running a smuggling operation that sent a boat to Australia in June last year, with more than 200 asylum seekers on board.

It sank north of Christmas Island, killing about 100 people.

Billu is facing smuggling charges in Jakarta and prosecutors want him jailed for 10 years and fined 500 million rupiah ($45,000).

They claim there is enough evidence to convict him of smuggling charges over the deadly boat journey, and another boat that was sent in February this year.

Another member of the alleged smuggling syndicate, who is already in jail, has given evidence against Billu.

Billu has denied involvement but will begin his official defence when the case resumes next year.
