Dear Prime Minister,
My letters to you are about the immorality and inhumanity of Australia's persecution of our fellow humans in offshore detention. But there is also a shocking financial cost to our regimes on Manus Island and Nauru.
The auditor's report (Jan 2017) found that $2.2bn was spent by DIBP on offshore processing without appropriate/any approval.
This is a recurrence of the same irresponsible and profligate spending that the audit office condemned DIBP about in September 2016. End the financial burden of this regime and close the camps.
