Message from Pamela Curr, ASRC – 20 April 2016
MITA – formerly a transit camp at Broadmeadows- now a HIGH SECURITY PRISON
Today Border Force has broken up friendship groups at the MITA. 27 single men are now locked up in Calder, isolated from their friends and only able to make contact after applying in writing to request a visit. It has been clarified that no time lines are given for when these requests will be honoured. It depends on SERCO staff deciding if there is a suitable time and space in visits.
