Letters to Tyranny #7

Dear Prime Minister,

I am writing to you about the seventh asylum seeker on Manus Island.

Mr XXX XXX, aged XX, needs our protection from persecution in XXXX. "No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile" is Article 9 of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

How quickly can Australia set up and staff an efficient and rapid processing of the refugee claims of those in off-shore detention, including Mr XXX?

Yours faithfully

Ruth Halbert
