A recent inquest by Queensland coroner Terry Ryan has found that the death of Hamid Khazaei was preventable and was the result of “multiple errors and systemic failures” in the Australian government’s detention centres. The coroner has called for mandatory judicial investigations into all deaths that take place in such camps, considering them deaths in custody. His report also expressed the need for refugees to receive proper healthcare in countries such as Australia but acknowledges that such action would require a “fundamental revision in the broader policy framework” set out by the government. Closing date – 19/9/2018
