Logham Savari, a young Iranian refugee fled from PNG to Fiji in late January. He was sent to Manus Island detention centre in 2013, after he tried to get to Australia by boat.
He suffered constant beatings and abuse and eventually accepted resettlement in Port Moresby to try and escape the horrors of detention.
