Dutton's illegal detention of Australians

Media Release
Nick McKim 5 Jul 2017

Peter Dutton must accept responsibility and come clean about his illegal detention of at least two Australian citizens, Greens Immigration spokesperson Nick McKim says.

"Peter Dutton wrongfully robbed these Australians of their freedom," Senator McKim said.

"He is running an offshore detention regime that has deprived thousands of refugees and asylum seekers of their liberty and deliberately harmed men, women and children."

"Whether through incompetence or design, the focus of Peter Dutton's cruel regime has now been trained on Australian citizens."

"This scandal was kept secret for many months. How many other Australians has Peter Dutton illegally locked up?"

"This kind of scandal has cost Ministers their job in the past. How much more cruelty and neglect will Malcolm  Turnbull let Peter Dutton get away with?"
