(AAP) – The federal government will try to deport an Iranian asylum seeker from Australia tonight after three unsuccessful attempts to force him to leave, a refugee group said today. The man, in his 30s, fled Iran for Australia four years ago after converting from Islam to Christianity – an offence punishable by death in his home country, according to the Refugee Action Collective. But the federal government has rejected his bid for asylum and he has exhausted all possible appeals. The group said the man, who has asked that his name not be released, forced Immigration Department officials to abandon attempts to deport him from Melbourne airport last week and early this week.
