26 January 2012
People Against Suffering, Oppression and Poverty (Passop) said yesterday the Maitland Refuge Reception Centre need to improve their services.
This comes after the death of a Bangladesh man yesterday afternoon at the facility while waiting to renew his asylum.
Police are still investigating the cause of his death.
Others on the queue told the Passop officials that the man had been waiting in line since the morning.
They say the 33-year-old was initially refused entry because of his illness.
Passop`s Langton Miriyoga said something needs to be done urgently.
