Sick, trapped, scared: Priya speaks from Perth hospital
“Priya Murugappan holds her daughter Tharnicaa in her arms. This weekend, the girl will turn four years old – she has spent, by this point, most of her life detained by the Australian government. When we speak via video call, Priya and Tharnicaa are under 24-hour guard at Perth Children’s Hospital.”
As her daughter battles sepsis, Priya Murugappan talks to The Saturday Paper about the four-year-old’s dramatic health decline while held in immigration detention.
