Guard Caught on CCTV Assaulting Detainee
A GUARD at Sydney's Villawood Immigration Detention Centre has been sacked for allegedly using excessive force on a volatile asylum-seeker nicknamed Spiderman, after shoving him to the ground, lying on him and pinning him down for almost three minutes.

CCTV footage obtained shows the incident in the medical waiting room at the centre in Sydney's west on October 2 last year. It came months after guards at the Maribyrnong Immigration Detention Centre in Melbourne complained to their bosses in writing that Spiderman had been assaulting guards there and getting away with it.

The sacked guard and a colleague who has been stood down and put on notice over the incident are still subject to an Australian Federal Police investigation.
