Sarah Ross on refugee Khodayar Amini who died after setting himself on fire

We speak with Refugee Rights Action Network campaigner Sarah Ross on the horrific suicide of Afghan asylum seeker Khodayar Amini who self immolated whilst on a video call to her and fellow refugee campaigner Michelle Bui.

In his message before he died he said – “My crime was that I was a refugee. They tortured me for 37 months and during all these times, they treated me in the most cruel and inhumane way, they violated my basic human right and took away my human dignity…They killed me as well as many of my friends such as: Nasim Najafi, Reza Rezayee and Ahmad Ali Jaffari”.
