Govt to review immigration detention cases, despite warnings from Justice Minister Peter MacKay
Federal Immigration Minister Peter Dutton has vowed to overhaul how federal detention has been run once his Department of Immigration and Citizenship reviews a number of immigration detention cases brought to the attention of the Attorney-General.
Mr Dutton’s comments come after Mr MacKay made a letter to the Immigration Minister requesting that the department review the cases in which detainees have been transferred to the detention unit of local authorities.
The Minister is currently engaged in an international visit for the G20.
Mr MacKay said in his letter that the department should review all asylum and immigration detention decisions and take appropriate action on any recommendations.
The Justice Minister did not say when the review would take place or what information the department would obtai바카라n in connection with the review.
“It’s a matter for the department’s review,” he told ABC News.
He did say that, to date, Mr Dutton had made it clear the department would not intervene in these cases.
He said some detainees involved in the review “are facing significant risk to themselves and their families”.
“They are on the margins of our detention system and they will be transferred to remote processing units,” Mr Dutton said.
“Some may have never been sent to Australia; some will have come back from abroad; some may have been detained for years without a serious charge against them.”

The Government’s decision comes after two separate reports of appalling conditions found that asylum seekers were being held in a “brutal and degrading” environment.
The Federal Government’s response to those reports has been limited to its statement that asylum seekers have a right to protection in the United States.
The Government has also stated that it does not plan to change its policies, and there is currently nothing to suggest there will be any changes under Mr Dutton’s review.
