Dear Prime Minister,
Red Cross have seen Azzam el Sheikh in Port Moresby's Bomana gaol and requested to the prison Commander that he be taken to hospital immediately. He was beaten up in Lorengau gaol by the order of an Australian man in plain clothes and has been untreated and not even showered for 26 days. His 'offence'? He refused Australia's offer of cash to return to Lebanon and asked for a review of his refugee status, as is his legal right.
When I rang Peter Dutton's office about Azzam I was told I was invading Azzam's privacy. Whose interest is this privacy? Not Azzam's. Behind the privacy screen it seems that Australia feels free to be more brutal and callous than can be believed possible.
Close the camps and bring them here.
