Refugee detained in same hotel as Novak Djokovic speaks about situation – video

Adnan Choopani has spoken about conditions in the facility that he has been in for the last 29 months. Choopani, an Iranian who was first detained in Australia nine years ago when he was 15, said refugees staying in the hotel had no access to fresh air or space to exercise and they were kept under guard 24 hours a day. 

‘To be honest the conditions day by day are getting worse because we’ve been kept in a limbo and indefinite detention,’ Choopani said.

Djokovic is staying on the floor below the refugees, who are housed on the second floor, as he awaits a court hearing over his visa cancellation.
