An investigation into a deadly riot at an Australian detention center has revealed that an Iranian asylum seeker was “brutally beaten” to death by a Salvation Army worker.


Reza Barati, 23, sustained fatal head injuries in February after hundreds of asylum seekers tried to break out of a camp on Manus Island off the Papua New Guinea (PNG) coast.

On Monday, the independent review on behalf of the Australian government quoted an eyewitness as saying that Barati suffered severe brain injury after a brutal beating led by a PNG national worker employed by the Salvation Army.
The review found no particular factor leading to the unrest at the Manus Island camp.

“It is not possible to isolate one factor which, if handled differently, may have resulted in less injuries and damage or to apportion blame for causing the incidents directly to one or more of the parties involved,” it said.

However, the report added that frustration and anxiety about future of the inmates is seen as the most probable reason behind the asylum seekers issue. Nearly 70 people were also injured in the violent crackdown.

In February, Australian newspapers reported that Barati might have been killed by Australian guards who stomped his head as he fell defenseless on the ground.

The reports cited an unnamed Australian guard at the camp accusing a group of other guards of attacking Barati in frenzy.
Australian Border Protection Minister Scott Morrison said Australia would repatriate Barati’s body to Iran at his family’s request after an autopsy is conducted on his body.

Following the incident, Australians held protests in a suburb of Sydney to denounce the killing.

The protesters slammed the government’s immigration policies, calling for the resignation of Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott.

  Are you kidding? A footballer from Iran once made fun of the Chinese in a soccer game. That guy from Iran should have been detained. Actually, I would have kicked his arse if I had been there.

Let's get a few facts straight shall we.

1) He was not a Salvation Army worker, He was a local employee.  There's a very big difference.

2) PNG is one of the most violent places on Earth.

3) Abbot is a f*ckta^d of the worst kind, a mixture of Thatcher, Regan and GW Bush rolled together to make a very nasty piece or work. His cabinet are little better.  Please note I do not support ANY political faction as they are all corrupt and frankly not worthy of office.

4) This is not the first time detainees have died or will die in custody. They are illegal immigrants and have committed a breach of the Australian immigration act. If they don't like the treatment they receive then go elsewhere.

Wow .. Howard’s children overboard disgusting repressive immigrants and unfair laws whilst brown  ...

Look I don't agree with the laws and Howard is and was a brown nosing wannabe shrub, a baby bush if you like.

There was no proof that any people were pushed off the boat in question, indeed video footage showed the refugees throwing kids off the boat.

Between 80-90% of asylum seekers are granted asylum in the end.  The fact is they are queue jumpers and as such break the law, if you want to move to Australia or anywhere else for that matter, do it legally.
