The Australian government has flatly denied a news report that a senior Sri Lankan government official was suspected by Australian authorities to have been complicit in the people-smuggling trade.

 

The Australian news paper reported that intelligence agencies had identified a high-profile Sri Lankan official who had authorised asylum-seeker boats leaving Sri Lanka bound for Australia.

 

But a spokesman for Foreign Minister Bob Carr said the claims were untrue.
