GOT 30 SECONDS?
by Ross Sharp
9 year – old Seena was orphaned 2 months ago when his mum and dad drowned on the boat that sank at Christmas Island. Seena was one of the survivors.
Seena has been returned to Christmas Island Detention Centre today despite fears for the child’s mental health and safety. Seena himself had told relatives he was scared to return.
Seena is being returned to detention despite having relatives in Sydney who are ready, willing and able to care for him.
Detention is no place for a child. It would be inhumane to keep Seena in detention. The poor child has suffered enough. We are asking people to support us in asking the Minister for Immigration (who is Seena’s legal guardian) to please act in his best interests and release him right now from detention into the care of his family.
