Peter Dutton frustrated after Turkish murderer escaped deportation, twice

The double murder of couple Korrine Aylward, 35, and Greg Tucker, 54, could’ve been avoided if an order to have killer Mustafa Kunduraci deported wasn’t rejected.

Kunduraci, an immigrant from Turkey, has been jailed for 35 years after pleading guilty to killing the couple in their Melbourne home in 2013.

He was initially banned from entering the country in 1995, but the ban was overturned by the Immigration Review Tribunal, and in 2007, a delegate to the Immigration Minister issued a deportation order for Kunduraci, but it was also overturned.

In 2010,  Kunduraci attacked and threatened to kill his former partner. He was jailed for six months.

In 2013, Kunduraci butchered Korrine and Greg, stabbing them both repeatedly.

Minister for Home Affairs Peter Dutton tells Ben Fordham it’s been “incredibly frustrating”.

“To see the decision overturned, it is frustrating.

“I think taxpayers, the Australian public, and most importantly the victims and their families, are being taken for a ride.”

“We’re working as hard as we can to kick people out of our country who’ve done the wrong thing.”
