The International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) has today denounced the Government’s plan to process asylum seekers in Malaysia. Non Profit Organisation ICJ claims the Government is in breach of international and national law. These calls come after the United Nations Commissioner for Human Rights Navay Pillay also warns Australia’s Asylum seeker deal could violate international Law.
