ABC RN Breakfast: Refugee brings landmark test case against handcuffing by Australian Border Force

‘The handcuffing of refugees and asylum seekers for medical appointments should be illegal, according to the Public Interest Advocacy Centre.’

‘Their client Yasir, who has a history of severe torture and childhood abuse, says restraints re-traumatise him and makes it impossible for him to seek treatment.’

‘The practice has also been criticised by doctors, the Commonwealth ombudsman and the Australian Human Rights Commission.’
