Our Comrade Arif from Afghanistan is the second asylum seeker to died in direct provision in less than 5 months.
He was placed in a dark, small and cold room during isolation at Tracey's Hotel, Carrickmacross, Co Monaghan a few weeks ago. This raised some traumatic experience of his sojourn to Ireland.
Few of the residents at the centre saw him walking around the centre at 4am the morning before his death. Arif had email IPAS to leave the centre many times.
