Christchurch reporter Anan Zaki was at the airport for Mr Boochani's arrival and filed this report.

"So much about the Australian policy, the border politics in Australia, is surreal", Omid Tofighian, the translator who helped compose Boochani's memoir, told NPR earlier this year.

"It was another slightly harrowing journey [to New Zealand] from the sounds of it, but we received him on a flight coming from Manila". "I just want to be free of the system, of the process".

Asked whether he would want to apply for asylum in New Zealand, he said he did not want divert his attention away from the objective of his visit, which is sharing his story in the book. Or I should stay there? "We've to break this wall that built on migrations whether here in Eu, Australia &USA". What is important is that I leave, and it is the end of this chapter for me.

"We campaign for the rights of refugees around the world". Mr Muhamat later applied for and was granted asylum in the country.

New Zealand has repeatedly offered Australia to resettle 150 refugees a year from the offshore detention centres but has been rebuffed.

Since 2013, the Australian government has refused to allow any asylum seekers who arrive by boat to settle in Australia, a policy introduced by former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and maintained by subsequent Liberal governments.

'I expected that they would welcome me and at least consider my case.

He is in New Zealand on a one-month limited visa for the specific objective of speaking at a writers conference in Christchurch. It is a humanitarian crisis where thousands of people have been stranded in detention centres indefinitely, in conditions that amount to torture.

The Manus Island centre was closed in late 2017, but about 250 of the 1500 detainees remain in Papua New Guinea.

Mr Boochani's book won multiple global awards, including Australia's richest literary prize. He was imprisoned in Papa New Guinea until August, when he was moved to accommodation on Port Moresby.

He has recently been accepted for resettlement in the USA, but said the process is slow and complicated, with several people waiting in limbo in Port Moresby.

About 50 refugees have taken up the offer to settle in PNG since processing began.

"I didn't want to go to prison in Iran so I left and when I got to Australia they put me in this prison for years", he told the BBC in January.

PNG's Immigration and Citizenship Authority previously said a "high standard of health, security and support services" were being provided at the centre and the men could access telephones.

Claiming asylum is a fundamental right that the country's laws recognise, and Mr Boochani has the right to do so, Ms Ghahraman said.

While not mentioning him by name, Boochani eviscerated Australian Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton.

"The Papua New Guinea Government has advised it has engaged a medical service provider to ensure that those failed asylum seekers that are detained by the Papua New Guinea Government receive necessary medical services", it said in a statement.
