REST IN PEACE to a young man imprisoned in Curtin,
Process SUSPENDED.
Our commiserations to his family.
Do not presume that he died by his own hand.

  1. Pamela Curr says:

    The previous death in Detention in 2008 was also the result of a heart attack. PISHEVARZ KHODAVERDI was a a 62 year old Iranian man who was placed in Villawood.

    He wanted to go home but becasue of the severity of his heart condition was pronounced not fit to travel. According to other detainees he was very ill, breathless and struggling to walk.

    Instead of releasing him on a visa, DIAC chose to keep him in detention.

    Detainees report that he was too breathless to walk unaided, was refused a walking stick and had to use an umbrella.

    How is it possible that SERCO and IHMS are able to ignore the needs of the desperately ill?

    There is another elderly Hazara man in Curtin right now suffering from Diabetes, Kidney Stones and needs 4 hourly Ventolin pumps to breathe.

    His grand-daughters in Sydney are asking why he cannot be transferred to Villawood where they could visit him and see that he gets medical care.

    Mandatory Detention kills.
