Deathscapes

‘In two minutes the boat is full of water. I saw myself in the water and realised all were dying.’ 

Survivor referred to as KBA10 during the inquest


‘What concerns me greatly now is the evidence of a systemic doctrine, particularly inside the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA)—what you might call a systemic culture of scepticism of asylum seeker distress claims. A spirit of “We better wait and see what happens to this, if they’re really in distress, because we know very often that they’re not”.’
