It is revealed in a SMH article today that not all children have been released from detention centres. In fact there are still numerous detainees in Villawood, and offshore detention centres. The latest move by the government on the refugee issue sees them trying to persuade mothers and children to move into residential housing project, leaving the fathers to be moved to nearby Baxter detention centre. This is unfare to the men, as I have said before in a previous post. On a more positive note, a man who was released from detention has been reunited with a cat named 'Honey' who stayed with him during his 18 months in detention, see article
