Commonwealth Agrees To Pay Manus Island Detainees

Thursday 15th June / presented by Chris Butler

Almost 2000 men, many warehoused on Manus Island in Papua New Guinea for nearly 4 years, will receive a share of a $70 million out of court settlement from the Australian government.

The Asylum seekers allege they’ve endured physical and psychological harm on Manus Island between 2012 and 2016

They also allege the Commonwealth breached its duty of care by holding them in conditions that didn’t meet Australian standards.

Law firm Slater and Gordon ran the class action and believes it to be the largest immigration detention trial ever in Australia.

Amy Frew from the Human Rights Law Centre talked to the Mag this morning
