Senate inquiry calls for all children to be removed from Nauru


The latest senate inquiry into Nauru Detention Centre has urged the Australian government to remove all children due to ‘insupportable’ conditions. The inquiry found 30 formal allegations of child abuse had been made against detention centre staff, 15 allegations of sexual assault or rape, and four allegations relating to the exchange of sexual favours. Immigration Minister Peter Dutton has said he’ll look into the findings and may consider downgrading high security at the detention centre, but some are saying this doesn’t go far enough.
