Letters to Asylum Seekers

"Last year I sent letters to 8 asylum seekers on Manus through Julian Burnside. 

Last week I received a reply from one Hussain (ID EMP 054). He is a Rohingya man from Burma who was forced to flee persecution and assault by Buddhists and ended up in Manus Detention centre via Malaysia.
He says the situation in Manus is “very bad”.

I will write to him again.
Also I sent a message of support to Commissioner Gillian Triggs and received a thank you reply.



Julian Burnside has become aware that letters sent were not getting through to asylum seekers.
The following article explains why letter to our asylum seekers were never answered.

It's disgraceful.  And probably illegal.
