Manus asylum seekers

Knight questions death of Sudanese refugee

MP Ronny Knight says now disgruntled asylum seekers are protesting yet another death.

According to refugee advocates, a 27-year-old Sudanese male refugee, known as Faysal, sustained the injuries on Thursday and was flown to Brisbane on Friday afternoon.

He died at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital on Saturday.

"These so-called carers are overpaid and seem not to be able to tell when people are really sick," said Knight.

Knight questioned why they were not fully staffed and why the Lombrum base hospital was not fully fitted.

He has called on the Australian Government to return those allegedly involved in the rape of a local, for investigations.

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull over the weekend announced the one-off refugee resettlement deal between Australia and the US for people on Manus Island and Nauru to be moved to the United States.

Turnbull, alongside Australian Immigration Minister Peter Dutton, over the weekend said the deal would only apply to those currently on Nauru and Manus Island.
