Free Said Imasi from indefinite detention

Peter Page started this petition to Peter Dutton (Minister for Home Affairs) and

Said Imasi has been held in indefinite detention in Australia for more than 8 years because he is stateless; i.e. not eligible to be the citizen of any country. His case is in the "too hard" basket yet his continued detention contravenes international agreements to which Australia is a party. He has no prospects for release in any time-frame. This is unconscionable and unacceptable and someone in the Australian government must ensure his detention is ended. Ministers Dutton and Bishop, please resolve this case and get Mr Imasi out of detention now.
