FAZILEH MANSOUR BEIGI

FAZILEH MANSOUR BEIGI

For months on Nauru, Fazileh Mansour Beigi had begged authorities to intervene in the declining mental health of her sons, held with her on Nauru. But her pleas went unanswered, and Fazileh’s eldest son, Fariborz, committed suicide in June 2018. After a months-long battle, his body was taken to Brisbane where he was buried. Fazileh continued to campaign for assistance for her surviving 12-year-old son.
