Another Manus Island death under Scott Morrison’s Care

September 3, 2014

Hamid-Manus

A 24 year-old Iranian asylum seeker, Hamid Kehazaei, who was urgently medivacced from Manus Island to Brisbane last Wednesday has been declared ‘brain dead’.

By the time Hamid was medivacced to Brisbane, he was suffering septicemia, from an infection spreading from a cut foot, and went directly into intensive care in the Mater hospital.

He had sought medical attention for days on Manus Island for the pain and the infection.

A couple of days ago he suffered a heart attack. Yesterday the Immigration Department told his family that Hamid was confirmed as ‘brain dead’. He remains on life support.

The hospital has told the family that a ‘guardian’ will be appointed at ‘some stage’ to decide on the withdrawal of life support.

The family has indicated that they are willing for Hamid’s organs to be donated if that is possible.

The compound where Hamid and 140 others had been living has been evacuated and closed.

“Hamid is a victim of the shocking conditions and medical neglect on Manus Island. It is inexcusable that he developed septicaemia on Manus Island,” said Ian Rintoul, spokesperson for the Refugee Action Coalition.

“Once again, Scott Morrison is responsible for a death on Manus Island. There are scores of infections on Manus Island, and many complaints of the lack of medical attention. Asylum seekers on Manus Island are often forced to walk through raw sewage.

“Nothing more obviously reveals Manus Island as a unhygienic hell-hole that must be closed.”

    Why wasn’t this person treated when he first presented? Gross inefficiency and negligence — typical of Morrisons uncaring attitude!

    Personally, I think Morrison is a sanctimonious, mealy mouthed c**t.

    The faux compassion is repulsive.

    But he’s hardly on his own.

    Morriscum still hasn’t released a statement yet.

    But didn’t the ALP set up Manus Island … just predicting …

    No expat would even contemplate going to a hospital in PNG … all are flown to Cairns Base Hospital …

    Morriscum and the Department supporting him are quite frankly a bunch prats …

    Yep you predicted right- i have to comment.

    In an imperfect world Howards Pacific Solution was the way to go. Anybody who voted for Rudd/Gillard is partially responsible for this. That includes Reb. TB. Toilet, Ricky, AO et al

    Perhaps the solution to the problem is to give anybody who voted for Rudd/Gillard in 2007 an asylum seeker to look after. As there are several million Greens/ALP voters this would empty the detention centers real quick and solve the problem.

    By the way is there a civil war going on in Iran?

    yes, its wonderful that our fcuking govt spends a fortune tormenting and killing poor bastards that haven`t harmed us in off-shore gulags

    #-blood-poisoning from neglect and denying medical treatment-#

    if any of us regular plebs treated a pet same as above, we would be dragged into court and probably jailed for animal abuse,

    this is the 2nd poor bastard these Govt-fcuks have killed,

    when the fcuk are they going to be charged and jailed.? #cnuts

    Don’t seem to recall you saying too much when the govt you voted for ie ALP/Greens were building detention centers and locking all these people up.

    And what if I didn’t vote for rudd/gillard?

    People who voted for abbott are responsible for two deaths caused by a negligent duty of care to people whom they imprisoned without crime. There’s also another who bashed his own head in after not being able to speak to his dying mother.

    You’re on a roll!

    We need a RC into AS deaths.

    See what i say about lefties. Natural totalitarians. I did not make any threats and the guy wants to ban me.

    Fact is this is what the ALP/Greens built from 2007-2013 and anybody who voted for them

    Wickham Point (established in Darwin in 2011)
    Curtin (near Derby, WA, reopened in 2010)
    Scherger (near Weipa, Queensland, established in 2010)
    Yongah Hill (near Northam, WA, established in 2012)
    There was also
    Inverbrackie Alternative Places of Detention opened 2010
    Leonora Alternative Place of Detention opened 2010
    Port Augusta Immigration Residential Housing reopened 2010″
    Manus Island reopened 2012

    You find out what people believe by what they do not by what they say.

    But you have made many threats to anyone who challenges your BS …

    … like all the cadre of right wing supporter here you always claim that those of the left (however much they lean) do what you actually do … you intimidate, threaten, call violent actions, misdirect, spin comments, ignore factual data and finally whimper the world is yours to command and ordinary people are pawns to be played with …

    Guess what, schoolboy, you and yours are WRONG!

    And BTW for the last time (sb, will make not of this – as he does with all my comments and will regurgitate them on demand) – I have NO faith in ANY politicians in my STATE nor in FEDERAL parliament … NONE …

    And finally for your information the government that YOU voted for is a DISASTER and in 12 months could have dismantled every ALP gulag … and so as far as I’m concerned you too can FUCK OFF – unless you “discuss’ issues …rather than “attack” people …

    How so?? Putting humpty dumpty back together is not easy.

    It took a while for somebody to respond but i stand by what i say. And i have never said anybody should be banned like Ricky said i should be.

    You find out what people believe by what they do not by what they say. And the ALP/Greens locked up more people than any govt in Australian history.

    I rest my case.

    Weasel words … YOUR government has had TWELVE months … all they’ve done is give a way some expensive lifeboats … and played silly buggers with the RAN … that’s the Royal Australian Navy … GPS that are 7km “out” is just stupid …

    You find out what people believe by what they do not by what they say.

    And you’ve done what?*

    *wanking does not count …

    ” … all they’ve done is give a way some expensive lifeboats … ”

    And avoided any discussion on asylum seekers and refugees …

    YOUR government is answerable to the VOTERS not Fuckwits like you …

    TB

    Actually they have stopped the boats. Something YOUR govt said could not be done.

    “and in 12 months could have dismantled every ALP gulag”

    Actually i am not sure if gulag is the correct word. Something else comes into mind but i don’t want to mention it.

    What have YOU DONE, It ?

    BTW I do hope you have just watched 7.30 Report … re the F35 … and how YOUR government has compounded the purchase of a dud …

    And if it makes you feel better WGAF anyway … I’ve argued against the F35 since I began researching it through Howard/Rudd/Gillard/Rudd Abbott … all these governments have/are simply putting Australia at risk (and particularly aircrew) and wasting taxpayers money …

    I shall be commenting tomorrow with a copy of the segment …
