"I believe this is really because I'm an Asian, student visa.
"And there was a false impression that I didn't have the resources or the skills to defend my innocence.
"After I was accused and imprisoned, the only consolation was that the Australian Australian Police had relied on the Australian judicial system, which was completely independent."

Nizamdeen repeatedly told the researchers that the handwriting in the notebook was not his own.

He said the detention put his family in harm's way. He couldn't talk to them a month after his arrest.
