Dear Prime Minister,
Is it Australian Government policy to withhold weekly allowances and phone cards from some of the Manus refugees currently in Port Moresby? Radio NZ reports that the refugees at Granville Hotel, who are waiting for medical treatment, have not received phone cards since Paladin Solutions took over the hotel's security. Refugees at two other hotels in Port Moresby, however, are still getting phone cards.
It is vital that refugees can stay in contact with their families. Phone cards are a necessity. Yet again this shows the inhumanity of Australia's treatment of refugees. Bring all detained on Manus and Nauru to safety and freedom now.
