Sudanese refugee wins Martin Ennals human rights prize

Sudanese refugee wins Martin Ennals human rights prize

A Sudanese refugee detainee has received a top human rights award Martin Ennals Award for exposing what he has described as Australia's "inhumane" treatment of asylum seekers.

Abdul Aziz Muhamat, 26, was held at the Manus Island detention centre after fleeing violence in Darfur.

Over six years, he sent thousands of WhatsApp messages to a journalist who told his story in a podcast.

The Martin Ennals Award recognised his "extraordinary tenacity and courage".
