Vigil for Fazel Chegeni

Australia House, London. Tue 8 Nov 2016


 People prepare for the vigil calling for Justice for Fazel Chegeni, an Iranian Kurd

 who escaped from immigration detention on Christmas Island and was found dead

 He had been accepted as a refugee in Australia because he had been arrested and tortured in Iran

 but was prosecuted for a trivial fight at a detention centre canteen and his visa was revoked

 after Australia passed new draconian laws about refugees

 

 Imprisoned on remote Christmas Island and in indefinite detention

 he was stateless and rejected by Australia

  and suffering from mental health problems

 many who met him and wrote case records sympathised with him, but the

 system was inflexible and would do nothing to help him

he escaped from the detention centre

 and two days later his dead body was found
