MELBOURNE: The Australian Greens have called for Scott Morrison to be sacked from the Ministry following revelations that the violent attacks on Manus Island took place inside the refugee prison camp, resulting in the death of asylum seeker Reza Berati.
Tony Abbott must take personal responsibility for the failure of the morally bankrupt and cruel offshore processing regime that was started by Labor and embraced by his government.
It is clear that the government are trying to cover up how brutal the attacks on refugees inside the Manus Island camp really were. This is an appalling abuse of government power, and Scott Morrison should be forced to resign.
We will continue to see tragedy, cruelty and unrest in these refugee prison camps until Tony Abbott shuts them down.
