When Abdirahman Ahmed Mohammed first sought asylum in Australia, he still carried a bullet in his leg.
- Mr Mohammed suffered a heart attack while on Nauru in 2019
- He spent years in offshore detention but was released into the community last year
- Refugee advocates say Australia’s refugee policies often lead to medical neglect
But the Somali refugee’s health problems would only become more severe in his years in offshore detention on Manus Island in Papua New Guinea, and later on Nauru.
Mr Mohammed died of a heart condition in Perth this month, on February 15, a day after his 39th birthday.
He is survived by his wife, from whom he is separated, and other relatives in Australia who did not wish to speak to the media at this time.
