Manus refugee death 2016

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.
