In 2005, Australia moved almost all asylum seekers from the disputed camp, but the two Iraqis were allowed to stay and Nauru government was concerned about their situation and mental health. The men had been granted refugee status, but the Australian Security Police considered them a security risk for Australia and therefore kept them in Nauru. The bankrupt country is dependent on Australia for its survival and has since 2001 been paid to house refugees. In October, one of the two refugees was taken to Australia for psychiatric care, while the other remained in the camp. In December, the man was able to leave the camp for a third country willing to receive him. According to Australian media, the Iraqis came to Sweden. The Australian Minister of Migration did not want to reveal where he had been granted asylum, but said it was a Scandinavian country.
