Australian Greens Immigration Spokesperson Nick McKim has been ordered to leave Manus Island on the sixth anniversary of the commencement of indefinite offshore detention.
“The veil of secrecy continues to surround Australia’s detention centres on Manus Island and Nauru,” Senator McKim said.
“As a member of the Australian Parliament it is my duty to examine the conditions in which Australia’s detainees are being kept.”
“This has been six long years of cruelty and deprivation.”
“The mental health of detainees is at an all-time low.”
