This is still breaking people: update on human rights violations at Australia’s asylum seeker processing centre on Manus Island, Papua New Guinea

12 May 2014
Description

Abstract: There appears to have been little or no effort by the Australian and Papua New Guinean governments to address the recommendations in Amnesty International’s December 2013 report, This is Breaking People. The primary concerns around arbitrary and indefinite detention and lack of clear plans for processing and resettlement of asylum seekers remain unaddressed and are fuelling widespread anxiety and despair among detainees. Amnesty International remains concerned about overcrowding. Furthermore, not a single refugee assessment has been made in more than 18 months since the centre was first opened.
