CONVICTED New Zealand crooks will continue to be deported from Australia despite concerns about the tough policy across the Tasman.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull stood firm on his government’s new approach during bilateral talks with counterpart John Key today, but has promised to speed up the appeals process.
The policy, where non-Australian citizen jailed for a year or more imprisonment has their visa revoked, has created unrest in New Zealand with more than 240 Kiwis in detention on Christmas Island.
