Behrouz Boochani is a Manus Island detainee who has won Australia's richest literary prize. His book, "No Friends But the Mountain" was composed one text message at a time from within the detention centre.
However, however Behrouz was unable to attend the award ceremony as government denied him access.
Behrouz said "I certainly did not write this book just to win an award. My main aim has always been for the people in Australia and around the world to understand deeply how this system has tortured innocent people on Manus and Nauru in a systematic way for almost six years. I hope this award will bring more attention to our situation, and create change, and end this barbaric policy."
