Abstract

s99, a name given by the Federal Court to a young African refugee, was unconscious and suffering an epileptic seizure when she was raped. She had been transferred to Nauru by the Australian government after fleeing persecution in her home country. As with all refugees in Nauru she had been held in a detention centre paid for by the Australian government, and had subsequently been ‘released’ into the Nauruan community. It was then that she was raped, as a result of which she became pregnant.
