Nauru - End the detentions

Australia must show “political courage” and end the indefinite detention of asylum seekers held on Nauru, the new Pacific representative of the United Nation human rights office of the high commissioner, Chitralekha Massey has said. 

She said Australia’s detention of asylum seekers on Nauru “is unsustainable, it’s a violation and it’s unnecessary”. 

The continuing reports of abuse, self-harm and sexual assault had created an alarming environment at the centre that Massey said needed be resolved.
