'It's impossible to fake anything'

Q&A with Dr Barri Phatarfod


Australian Doctor: Is there any truth in Minister for Immigration Peter Dutton’s claims that asylum-seekers are doing medical ‘con’ jobs to stay in Australia?

Dr Phatarfod: The idea that people are here for spurious reasons is so offensively wrong. It’s people with heart attacks, pacemakers, back surgery, and 20 women who were raped.

AD: So these people are not faking their medical conditions?
