Today, the good news is that Australia’s longest serving detainee, Peter Qasim, has been released from the immigration detention centre, after almost seven years behind the razor wire.
It’s a fantastic day for all freedom lovers!
Now, with a brand new temporary visa under his belt, stateless Peter Qasim is allowed to live in the Australian community; and can look for a job when his health improves.
In fact, he is free to do anything within reason. In a manner of speaking, he can now watch the big brother, if he likes; instead of the big brother watching him.
