Violence on Manus Island: Behrouz Boochani on Dutton’s lies and what really happened on April 14th

On Friday 14th April, more than 100 shots were fired in to the Manus Island detention centre by armed locals and Navy personnel, following an altercation between asylum seekers and PNG military personnel on a soccer field. The detention centre is technically now under the jurisdiction of the adjacent Lombrum Naval Base. Kurdish journalist and asylum seeker Behrouz Boochani, detained on Manus Island for four long years, has questioned Immigration Minister Peter Dutton’s version of the incident, in which three asylum seekers were injured. Alex Whisson spoke to Behrouz last Friday, and asked him for his own account of what took place.
