Aust.: Last Tampa refugee still has no reply

Last Tampa refugee still has no reply from Department of Immigration

Greens Senator Kerry Nettle spoke to the last remaining Tampa refugee on Nauru who told him that he still has not had a reply to his desperate letter sent to the department one month ago(attached).

"I spoke to Mohammed this morning to see if he had received a reply to his letter yet and he told me that he had not," Senator Nettle said.

"The department must do better than to treat Mohammed in this way. He is a refugee who deserves compassionate treatment not cold bureaucratic indifference.

"I call again for John Howard to end this debacle and bring Mohammed Sagar to Australia.
