A man who has spent the last nine years in immigration detention is seeking his freedom in the High Court, with a case that challenges one of the court’s most controversial decisions in recent decades. If successful, his case could curb, or even bring an end to, Australia’s internationally criticised system of indefinite detention.

Said Imasi, who believes he is 29, arrived in Australia in January 2010 without a passport or identity documents. In the nine years he has been detained since, Australia has never been able to ascertain his identity.
