Medical Transfer from Offshore is Not Enough
Medical Treatment is Urgently Needed
Nur Mohammed Dhali from Nauru was Medevacced to Brisbane on 23 December as you may recall.
He is being kept in solitary in Room 707 at a Meriton Hotel in Herschel Street Brisbane. He has not yet seen a doctor, despite promises.
He is told that he is isolated because he is in “quarantine”. However, other concurrent arrivals from Nauru are not in quarantine.
This is completely unacceptable, even at this time of year.
His medical care has not started. He has been under guard, denied company, a case manager, a SIM card, walks around the building, outings and the treatment he urgently needs.
Labor is supposed to improve the human rights record of the Immigration Department.
There are many pressing matters. It is a difficult time of year, but keeping 3 Medevacuees in solitary for ten days is abuse.
A quick escalation of this matter and a prompt review of Nur, including the long awaited MRI will prevent this from becoming “nuclear”.
