Inspectors find Manus Island in run-down state - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Inspectors find Manus Island in run-down state - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) | Psycholitics & Psychonomics | Scoop.it
Government and military officials have found the old immigration detention centre on Papua New Guinea's Manus Island to be very run-down.

 

'Eight boats carrying a total of 454 people have arrived since the Government announced its new offshore processing policy on Monday.

 

Five of those boats came in a 24-hour period as the Government rushed its legislation through the Senate.

 

The Federal Government says it wants the centres up and running in weeks, not months.'

'The expert panel on asylum seekers has made 22 recommendations, including the establishment of a capacity for processing asylum seekers in both Nauru and Papua New Guinea, in a report expected to define the government’s future policy on asylum seekers.

 

The report, which the panel described as “hard-headed but not hard-hearted” and “realistic, but not idealistic”, also recommends the government continue to build on the current arrangement with Malaysia.'

 

Some responses to the report:

 

'The late Fred Daly, the Labor MP, once said governments ought not to have inquiries unless they know what the outcome will be.'

 

'......their tag line ‘hard headed not hard hearted’ is a reasonable summary' of what they’ve achieved.

 

'The government has managed to snooker itself once again.'

 

'Even though Houston said over and over it’s not a political document he did say also it was a realistic document.'

 

'A very serious examination of the psychological dynamics that are associated with the asylum seekers process in order to ensure safety is really important.

 

In the dynamic of safety seeking once you sink your capital into the people smuggler loop you’re stuck there, there’s no capacity outside that to escape it.'
