Update on Mr X’s Status In Detention — 25.07.2012

Security firewalls in detention have become incredibly strict for Mr X. He has been attempting to fax documents to RISE for the last two days and has been repeatedly told “the fax machine is not working” by SERCO guards at the Maribyrnong Immigration Detention Centre. It is creating a great deal of anxiety and stress and can actually jeopardise Mr X’s asylum case if these documents are not sent. We know that their fax machine is not out of order. These are merely excuses meant to keep detainees in a constant state of anxiety and dependency. Please call the Maribyrnong Immigration Detention Centre and express your concern: 03 9318 1999 and press “6” to speak to a SERCO representative . We can play their game too: demand they fix their fax machine as soon as possible!
