Parliamentary approval sought for off-shore processing
CPD Fellow joins Jenny McGregor in conversation with Waleed Aly
CPD Fellow Arja Keski-Nummi was interviewed on ABC RN Drive, alongside AsiaLink CEO Jenny McGregor.
Arja expressed her regret at the report published yesterday by the government’s ‘Expert Panel’, wit the result that today the Federal Government is seeking Parliamentary approval for offshore processing centres on Nauru and Manus Island as part of its asylum seeker policy. According to the programme, “key questions remain” on the likely length of detention for new refugees, as well as, “what the debate is doing to our relationships with Australia’s neighbours.”
