Statement on Dr Kylie Moore-Gilbert

  • Statement
11 September 2020

Our thoughts are with Dr Kylie Moore-Gilbert and her family on the second anniversary of her detention in Iran.

The Government’s efforts to secure Dr Moore-Gilbert’s release are an absolute priority and continue without pause.

We do not accept the charges upon which Dr Moore-Gilbert was convicted, and want to see her returned to Australia as soon as possible. 

We continue to seek regular consular access to Dr Moore-Gilbert. While we work hard to bring her home, our utmost priority is on her health, wellbeing and safety.

The Government believes the best approach to secure Dr Moore-Gilbert’s release is through diplomatic channels.
