Dear Prime Minister,
Why did Australia increase the contract fee paid to Port Moresby security company Paladin from $39 million to $72 million one month before Paladin's contract was due to expire? The contract period was 4 months. Will the Government continue to pay $33 million per month for security on Manus?
On 15 January the Manus company Kingfisher threw the Paladin staff off the West Haus and Hillside sites. Behrouz Boochani reported:
The refugees are not safe. What will happen on Jan 31 2018 when the security contract expires?
