Asylum seeker gains access to Australia after ruining a do-it-yourself enlargement procedure
Asylum seeker gains access to Australia following the failure of a do-it-yourself enlargement procedure and qualifies for medical care financed by taxpayers
- An Iranian asylum seeker was brought to Australia from Papua New Guinea
- Unknown man in his thirties had injected his penis with palm oil
- The asylum seeker must now undergo genital reconstructive surgery
- Australian taxpayers pay foot under the controversial co-vac laws of Labor Party
An Iranian asylum seeker who has messed up his DIY penis enlargement will undergo genital reconstructive surgery, which will be funded by the Australian taxpayer.
The man suffered from swelling and limited function of his genitals after he had injected his penis with palm oil.
He was brought to Australia for treatment from Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, under the condition of a physician as part of the controversial co-vac laws of the Australian Labor Party.
The man, who is not identified, can also remain in the country indefinitely because the legislation stipulates that asylum seekers may not be returned to detention centers after their treatment.

The man in his thirties arrived in Australia for the first time by boat in 2013, but was brought from Christmas Island to Papua New Guinea.
He committed around 50 infringements during that period, including is arrested after throwing boiling water at a guard and beating an officer who has confiscated his pornography.
Despite his history, the man will undergo expensive genital reconstructive surgery at a Gold Coast private hospital that will be funded by taxpayers after his fellow vacac application has been approved.
Genital reconstructive surgery can cost up to $ AU 10,000 ($ US 6,900)
Australia's home affairs minister, Peter Dutton, approved the man's application, since appeals are only denied if patients violate safety tests in Medevac legislation in the ASIO Act, The Daily Telegraph reported in Australia.
The man is currently awaiting surgery in southeast Queensland.

He is one of hundreds of men who have tried to enlarge the penis by injecting various substances into their penises in Papua New Guinea.
There have been 136 prisoners who have entered Australia from Nauru and Papua New Guinea since the co-vac legislation was adopted in February, with fewer than one in 10 needing medical treatment on arrival.
The House of Representatives of Australia voted to repeal the Medevac laws after the general election earlier this year, while the Greens, Labor and Center Alliance all expressed their support for the bill.
