Confusion over at-risk refugees treatment

Liberty Victoria president Julia Kretzenbacher described the government’s legal argument in the court as a “radical shift in policy” and a “shocking and unprecedented development, indicating complete disregard by the Australian government for international laws and standards, and its moral obligation not to expel people to harm”.

“If the minister wants to ensure we do not breach these crucial obligations to refugees, then that should be clearly set out in legislation,” Ms Kretzenbacher said.
