Manus Island Report

Tuesday 27th May / presented by James Hall

The Minister for Immigration Scott Morrison has confirmed that a deal is being negotiated to resettle detainees currently on Nauru - who are found to be genuine refugees - in Cambodia.

However, concerns have been raised over the safety for refugees to be settled in Cambodia - a country with a questionable human rights record that’s in the midst of an unresolved political situation following corruption claims of last year’s government elections.

This comes as the Government releases an independent report into February’s Manus Island riot and death of Reza Burati.

James spoke with the CEO of the Refugee Council of Australia, Paul Power.
