Today at MITA – Pamela Curr

 Message from Pamela Curr, ASRC – 20 April 2016

ONE OF THE WORST OF DAYS AT THE MITA

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.
