REST IN PEACE to a young man imprisoned in Curtin,
Our commiserations to his family.
Do not presume that he died by his own hand.
A 30-YEAR-OLD detainee has died after being found unconscious at the Curtin Immigration Detention Centre in Western Australia.
The Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) confirmed the death today.
Staff tried to revive the man after he was found unconscious on Saturday afternoon.
He was taken by ambulance to Derby Hospital and transferred by air overnight to Perth’s Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital where he died on Sunday.
The cause of his death and the reason for his collapse are not yet known, the department said in a statement.
“At this stage there are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances surrounding the man’s death,” it said.
The department has advised the man’s family and expressed its sympathy over his death.
