ANOTHER REFUGEE DIES ON MANUS
A 32 year-old Rohingya refugee has died on Manus Island.
Initial reports indicate that the refugee was killed when he was hit by a bus around 11am very near to West Haus refugee compound, althoughsome repiorts are saying he jumped from the bus.
Some refugees on Manus believe that it was most likely to be suicide.
The Rohingyan refugee also suffered from seizures and had previously been medivacced to Australia for treatment.
“One more reason to evacuate Manus Island and bring all refugees and asylum seekers to Australia,” said Ian Rintoul, spokesperson for the Refugee Action Coalition, “Salim should never have been on Manus Island.
"He should not have been taken there in 2013, and he should not have been returned there after he was brought to Australia for medical treatment in 2014.
“Peter Dutton is responsible for yet another death in offshore detention.”
