Govt to review immigration detention cases for potential abuse of detainees – after the man died in July
Immigration Minister Peter Dutton has rejected suggestions there was abuse of asylum seekers at the Manus Island detention cent호 게임re during the federal government’s review into detainee deaths at offshore processing centres.
Asked about allegations of the deaths of a man who was transferred to a detention centre at Manus Island, Dutton said the “detention centre is subject to constant scrutiny from the Australian government”.
But he did not provide any evidence of any abuse being committed on Manus Island. “I don’t believe there were cases where any detainee was mistreated at any of our offshore processing facilities,” Dutton said.
Refugee advocates are accusing the Turnbull government of a “systematic failure of leadership” that the deaths of the two men at the detention centre are not a good enough reason for the review to be completed.

The minister said the death in July of a man who is believed to have been transferred to Manus Island – the only one of eight asylum seekers there since 2012 to die – had sparked discussions with the families of the two dead men.
“What I have been trying to establish is whether any of those interactions between government and detainee family has caused them to make any additional comment, in any form, whatsoever, at any time – including as far back as six months ago – and that is the situation here on Manus Island today, and is going forward, for sure,” Dutton 우리 카지노said.
Earlier in the day, a Papua New Guinea man who has been on Manus Island since 2012 said he was being held in a room, not a cell, “for about three weeks”. He was allowed to leave several times but the last time, he said, he was sent back to “an outdoor area for exercise and not to take any meals, because I was sick”.

It is unclear whether or not there is a relationship between the two men.
On Thursday, Australian Labor was accused of attempting to distance itself from the government after it revealed it had not requested details about the death and treatment of the two men who died i
