More damning evidence

An article in today's Sydney Morning Herald gives further evidence to the inefficient and inhumane nature of the Liberal government's refugee policy. This report extends to the government being accused of giving the detainees they are deporting false identification in order to get into other countries. This evidence will be presented to the UN, which is a promising sign seeing Australia is quick to condemn breaches of Human Rights by other countries and then sweep it's own breaches under the carpet. Maybe now the issue will be given some priority by the UN and more pressure will be but on racist and uncompassionate government.
