A refugee advocate has married a 31-year-old Manus Island detainee, the Saturday Telegraph has revealed.
The news outlet reports Dianne Baumann and Mohsen Norozi married at the end of last year and told the paper they would live together for a “long time in the future”.
It’s unclear where Mr. Norozi is fleeing from, but it’s believed the 31-year-old has spent four years in detention after first being detained on Christmas Island. The couple now reside on Manus Island.
“I don’t think that anyone would get married for a visa because that’s ridiculous,” she told News Corp reporter Sharri Markson, adding the duo will be living together for a long time.
