Immigration Dept frees detained Australian

`It has been revealed an Australian resident has been locked up in Baxter Detention Centre in South Australia for the past 10 months.

The 39-year-old, known as Cornelia Rau, went missing from the Manly psychiatric hospital in Sydney in March 2004.

Queensland police say she was found in that state’s far north later that month.

Police spokesman Steve Keeling says police handed Ms Rau to immigration officials on April 5, suspecting she was an illegal immigrant.’
