An Iraqi man who is being held at Villawood Detention Centre is facing imminent deportation back to Iraq, with his original application denied and his appeal dismissed on the technicality of being filed too late.
The man has been on a hunger strike and has diminished health as a result.
He is known as “Saeed” (not his real name).
We have grave concerns that Saeed faces danger upon his return to Iraq, and that he has not had the access to justice in Australia that we consider fair.
The ONLY chance we have of saving Saeed from deportation is if our politicians believe that the Australian people want it. That's why we're asking you to email Immigration Minister Peter Dutton who has the final say whether Saeed's application will be reviewed, or if he'll be deported.
