Guys had symptoms and were sick for a long time before action was taken. One of the first guys tested positive was previously at the Kangaroo Point detention centre in Brisbane begging to be in a safe place when one of the guards tested positive there last year.

Reza Barati was murdered on #Manus #OTD, 17 February, 2014.

Barati, an Iranian Kurdish refugee, detained in an Australian offshore prison camp, was 23 years old.

He died from severe head trauma after being set upon by multiple detention camp guards and employees. #RezaBarati
In 2016, two PNG nationals, one who had been employed as a security guard and one as a Salvation Army worker, were convicted of Barati's murder and sentenced to ten years imprisonment. Five years of the sentences were suspended, and credit was given for time served. #RezaBarati
The judge presiding said they received lighter sentences because two Australians known to be involved in the killing had not been charged. #RezaBarati #Manus #FreeTheRefugees
