Racism causesÂ heroin addictionÂ in South Australia:Â
An Iranian refugee tried to set fire to a man in Norwood as a result ofÂ racism-related depressionafter September 11.
Kayvan Zarei, 30, of Marden, was found guilty of assault and endangering life in the District Court late last month after he tried to punch a woman and set fire to a witness outside the Norwood Centrelink office in 2006.
The court heard that Iranian-born Zarei, who migrated to Australia with his family in 1999,Â developed depression and a heroin addiction following a backlash against Muslims in the wake of the September 11, 2001, attacks.Â
A kindly judge declined to imprison him:Â
“The offence was committed in circumstances where you had lost your employment,” he said.
“You were suffering withdrawal psychosis from drugs, you were having difficulty coping with the stressors of your life and you reacted erratically, inappropriately, and in what was, on all accounts, a bizarre manner.”Â
