Hi, my name is Jasmine. I’ve been a regular visitor to MITA detention centre in broadmeadows since 2013. Last week a friend I visit, Rajan, was diagnosed with Leukemia. Rajan has been in detention for over 9 years now. We have started a petition for his release, so that he can be supported by his friends during this difficult time.
