The refugee detention centre on Manus Island has a long history of violence and cover ups, with the latest reports alleging a young woman was raped by ex-pat security guards, while a young man lost his hand in a machete attack. An investigation has been launched, however the guards in question have been sent away, denying the investigation their testimony. I spoke to Ian Rintoul, an advocate with the Refugee Action Collective, about this situation, and what could be done.
