MURUGAPPAN FAMILY — CHRISTMAS ISLAND DETENTION

HON ALISON XAMON (North Metropolitan) [7.59 pm]: I rise to make a few comments about an incident that occurred over the winter recess. Members would be aware of the case of Priya and Nades, a couple, who certainly want to be Australians, who were in Sri Lanka and arrived in Australia seeking asylum. They ended up being detained in March 2018 and are currently being detained on Christmas Island. Priya became very unwell while she was on Christmas Island.
