From Manus to Moresby: Story for The Guardian on Bomana detention centre

During a brief but busy trip to PNG in October, I had the privilege to spend a little time with Behrouz Boochani, the Iranian-Kurdish journalist and refugee whose powerful advocacy has earned him international recognition. (This was shortly before he finally left PNG and flew to New Zealand, and his next chapter.) Behrouz acted as interpreter in an interview with an Iranian asylum seeker speaking out on conditions inside the new Bomana detention facility in Port Moresby. Link to the story is here.
