Dear Prime Minister,
An asylum seeker on Nauru who needed knee surgery was finally sent, after many months, not to Australia but to a hospital in Papua New Guinea. When DIBP has been asked about this and similar cases it says that the Government of Nauru determines who gets transferred to Australia for medical treatment. Leaked documents from IHMS show this to be a lie. It is the Australian Border Force who controls the Government of Nauru and prevents asylum seekers from being flown to Australia. Patients will only be transferred if they are at risk of permanent disability or death.
Stop the torture. Close the camps. Bring them here.
