@BehrouzBoochani [24/11/17]: Manus prison camp today

 

 

@BehrouzBoochani [24/11/17]:  Manus prison camp yesterday about 11 Am

 

 

A lawyer has condemned the “forceful” removal of asylum seekers from the regional processing centre on Manus yesterday, saying it was a breach of human rights.

Ben Lomai, who represents the asylum seekers, told The National that the persons responsible for the forceful removal could be cited for contempt because there was an appeal case pending in the Supreme Court relating to the matter.

“While the appeal is still afoot, there is no respect for the court process taking place and they can be cited for contempt in the face of the court,” he said.

Lomai said he had collected pictures of yesterday’s incident and he would discuss with his clients the possibility of filing contempt proceedings.

Lomai said his client Kurdish-Iranian journalist Behrouz Boochani was among more than 20 men taken from the centre.

“If they want to move them (asylum seekers) out of Lombrum, they have to go to court and get an order because that centre has been gazetted as a processing centre,” Lomai said.

“So they cannot move to the other centres which have not been gazetted.

“By law, they are entitled to remain in Lombrum.

“That’s one of the issues we have raised in the substantive appeal.”

The appeal by Lomai on behalf of Boochani and others relates to a ruling by Chief Justice Sir Salamo Injia refusing an application to have basic services like water and electricity restored to the centre after it was decommissioned on Oct 31. ... [The National - 24/11/17]

Labor Party's support of deportation, imprisonment of asylum seekers cheapens the Israeli opposition [Haaretz - 22/11/17]:

 

Under the leadership of new Labor Party Chairman Avi Gabbay, the MKs of the Zionist Union gave their support Monday to a disgraceful government bill for the deportation and imprisonment of asylum-seekers.

If the draft law is passed, the Holot detention center would be shuttered and asylum-seekers given a choice: deportation to Rwanda or indefinite incarceration in Israel.

Any attempt to ignore Israel’s legal and moral obligations to refugees for the sake of solving a supposed conflict with the needs of long-time residents of south Tel Aviv or of Arab citizens is nothing but cheap demagoguery.

Israel has no difficulty meeting its obligations without hurting its own disadvantaged communities; anyone who uses economic arguments to justify the failure to lend a hand to refugees is lying.

The state wasted over 1 billion shekels ($284 million) on building and operating Holot; four years later, it is in effect admitting its error and closing the facility.

No less concerning is Zionist Union’s puzzling decision to join the racists and ultranationalists from the right and the center of the political spectrum demanding the deportation or detention of 35,000 refugees....

RISE eX-detainees condemn today’s brutal attack on refugees and the forcible removal of refugees on Manus by Australian lead and funded authorities [23/11/17]:

 

Today refugee detainees on Manus informed us that they have been attacked by the Australian lead and funded authorities on Manus.

According to the reports, this operation is a joint effort by the AFP and the PNG authorities.

Refugees on Manus have been protesting the forcible removal to another refugee camp and have instead been pleading to end over 4 years of human rights violations against them by closing the camps all together and ending unjust mandatory detention of refugees.

Over the last 23 days the Australian government has ceased all food supplies, power and medical services which has put an already vulnerable community at an even further risk of harm.

Today, Australian led authorities entered the Manus torture camp and destroyed the belongings of all held there and began removing refugees forcibly one by one.

Additionally the police have arrested refugees so far including Kurdish journalist and refugee Behrouz Boochani.

Refugees are under attack; distressed and bashed while being forcibly removed.

This Manus systemic designed torture operation MUST end and refugees who are held hostage on the island MUST be evacuated immediately and given permanent protection in Australia and, if they choose, New Zealand.

We eX-detainees condemn this this type of terrorist and illicit activity led by the Australian government.

We also condemn all those who look to Labor and Liberal MP’s for instruction as opposed to taking direction from those with lived experience such as eX-detainees.

eX-detainee and founder of RISE Ramesh Fernandez said, “Manus is a designed operation, similar to operations carried out in Christmas Island and Cocos Island as well as in many other detention centres in mainland Australia. The Australian immigration officials are well recognised thugs who continue to function without any accountability in detention centres. Don’t be surprised because this has been going on for nearly 30 years now.”

Furthermore, we eX-detainees believe that people should stop repeating slogans such as “not in my name”.

These people have elected the politicians that support this torture of our communities and it is time to recognise the influence their vote has.

eX-detainees at RISE are calling for national and international wide action against the Australian Government for its inhumane treatment of refugees on Manus Island in Papua New Guinea.

While you take action on this urgent matter, get involved in eX-detainees #SanctionAustralia.

RISE eX-detainees call for immediate pressure to be placed on Australia from major international human rights bodies in the way of sanctions that address their deliberate and inhumane mandatory detention policy and refugee boat push back policies.

Specifically, Australia should be excluded from participation in all international humanitarian and human rights decision making processes until mandatory detention and refoulement of asylum seekers and refugees is abolished in Australia.

They are destroying everything. Shelters, tanks, beds and all of our belongings. They are very aggressive and put our belongings in the rubbish bins. The refugees still are silent are watching them so scared.

 

They are taking the phones and are very aggresive and are taking out some refugees who still remain in the rooms. Something terrible is happening right now, they are taking the refugees out of the rooms.

 

Some of the police squad are swearing at the refugees and threatening them to move. The refugees are still silent and sitting peacefully. Police have started to break the shelters, water tanks and are saying "move, move.” Too much tension and too scary.

 

The police, special forces, police squad are now in their hundreds, spreading through the prison camp and around the prison. Navy soldiers are outside the prison camp. We are on high alert right now. We are under attack.

 

Immigration and police started searching the rooms and are saying "Move Move", you only have an hour to move. Too much stress and tension here in Delta. Some refugees are crying.

 

The refugees are sitting peacefully and immigration and police are asking them to leave the prison camp. The refugees are only listening and completely silent. They are talking on the microphone and shouting " Move Move"

 

Immigration is threatening the refugees who are on the roof to come down and hand over their phones. They are very angry and are shouting at the scared refugees to deliver the phones.

 

So many police mobile squad and immigration officers came inside the prison camp. They are shouting at us to leave the prison camp. Some of the refugees are gathering in Delta compound and some are on the roof.

 

Too much tension in Delta compound. Hundreds of refugees gathering in Delta right now. An Australian Federal Police officer is guiding PNG police mobile squad, there are about 50 mobile squad police that are threatening people to leave.

Are Lomai-Barns pursuing a case for the men's FREEDOM and the right to seek asylum, or not? [The National - 23/11/17]:

 

Lawyer Ben Lomai representing the Manus refugees has filed an application in court asking that Chief Justice Sir Salamo Injia disqualify himself from the full Supreme Court bench hearing an appeal case concerning his clients.

Sir Salamo last week refused to grant orders to restore basics services to the closed detention centre on Manus, a case Lomai had filed on behalf of one of the refugees.

The parties will return to the Supreme Court tomorrow.

Lomai had filed the application to have Sir Salamo disqualify himself on Nov 14.

Sir Salamo said the application consisted of some technical errors because it was filed by Lomai and he had not filed supporting affidavits from his clients to support his application.

He said there were no supporting affidavits for cross examination purpose.

Lomai sought an adjournment to Friday.

The matter will also return for directions hearing of the appeal.

“They do not want to move from Lombrum to the other facilities because they are afraid that if they move, they may have to stay in that facility for another four years”

 

The National [23/11/17]:

 

A church leader has called on the Government to ensure that the asylum seekers at the Lombrum centre in Manus are treated as human beings and help them.

Father Victor Roche, pictured, the general secretary of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands who recently visited Manus, said the 420 men refusing to move out of the centre had no water to drink and were surviving with little food.

He said although they were asylum seekers, they were human beings too and it was the country’s duty as a Christian nation to help them.

“They do not want to move from Lombrum to the other facilities because they are afraid that if they move, they may have to stay in that facility for another four years,” he said.

“These are men separated from their families and want to see their wives and children.

“They do not want to be kept in another centre for another four years.”

Roche called on the government to give them food, water and electricity as a short-term help and talk to New Zealand who is willing to resettle some.

Roche called on the people of Australia to raise their voices and help the voiceless refugees to find a safe home.

Roche visited the Lombrum centre and the West Lorengau centre from Nov 19 to 21 after receiving approval from authorities.

He was, however, not allowed to visit the closed East Lorengau centre.
