Ghassan Nakhoul won a prestigious Walkley Award in 2002 for his SBS Arabic radio interviews with SIEVX survivors, entitled ‘Five Mysteries of SIEVX’. He has now written ‘the story of anguished souls, the asylum seekers and those who perished at sea’. With both major political parties engaged in a race to the bottom determined to circumvent our legal responsibilities to people seeking refuge in this country this book couldn’t be more timely.
‘Overboard’ is a graphic expose of the human suffering and misery endured by vulnerable people under Australia’s asylum seeker policies during the Howard era. It also includes testimony from SIEVX survivors.
