Regular attendees to the Tuesday Club will remember the young man, Abbas Nazari, speaking to us immediately after the Mosque murders. He arrived in New Zealand as a refugee from Afghanistan. He was 6 when he arrived with the group which had been picked up off the coast of Australia by the ship the Tampa.
Abbas is now studying in Washington on a Fulbright scholarship.
