I have just been speaking with someone detained on Christmas Island and when I asked how the guards were reacting to the reintroduction of mobile phones he said that it had changed things hugely.
He says they are being very friendly and treating the detainees decently ‘because they know we can record them’. It is the same in Medical, where mobiles had previously been banned (for the people allowed to have them).
The guys are so grateful for the work you and the NJP put into this case, but still find it hard to believe that Minister Dutton will not just push through legislation to ban smartphones.
I have also been hearing that IPads are allowed now.
Many thanks again - short of freedom, this is the best news friends in detention have had in a long time.
