Australia police are investigating the sudden death of a 36-year-old Fiji man at Sydney's Villawood Immigration Detention Centre.

The immigration department says the Fiji man had been detained at the centre since August the 17th.

A refugee advocate, Jamal Daoud, says the man was due to be deported today.

A police spokesman says the death is not suspicious and a report is being prepared for the information of the Coroner.
