The Immigration Department has granted approval for a small group of asylum seekers in detention to attend the funeral in Darwin of a well-known human rights advocate.
Vikki Riley died after she was struck by a car while crossing a busy Darwin road on her bicycle earlier this month.
She had been on her way to the Darwin detention centre, where she had been running art workshops for more than two years.
Ms Riley’s funeral is being held in St Paul’s in Darwin this afternoon.
