  1. Thank you for your excellent article, ‘Australian Asylum Law: Advocacy in Medicine’. I am contacting Prof Deborah Zion as a consequence. I am a consultant child psychiatrist specialising in trauma, and doing pro bono clinical assessments and advice for human rights lawyers and volunteer advocates for asylum seekers who are in detention centres run by Australian Border Force (DIBP).

    There is clearly compromising of senior clinicians working with IHMS, who subjugate practice to the agenda of DIBP.

    Grievious consequences on AS’s mental and medical health is major.

    Thank you again for your writings.
