While asylum seekers and refugees are still stuck in detention centres in appalling conditions, one company is making a big profit from their pain.

Spanish multinational company Ferrovial runs the Nauru and Manus Island processing centres and last year cashed in profits of over a billion dollars.

Amnesty’s new report “Treasure Island” details  how Spanish multinational infrastructure company Ferrovial is profiting from  its contracts  with the Australian government.  The report warns that such companies could be liable for compensation down the track becasue of their direct link to human rights abuses.
