Immigration Detention Royal Commission push gathers momentum

In light of recent developments uncovered by Nine Media the push for a Royal Commission into Immigration Detention – supported by the Justice and Peace Office – has gathered further momentum.

All the independent members of the House of Representatives jointly issued a call for a Royal Commission on Tuesday 1 August. The move is also supported by the Greens.

We have launched a dedicated website to keep supporters updated.

Julie Macken from the Justice and Peace Office also spoke alongside refugee advocate Zaki Haidari at a public event at the Labor National Conference in Brisbane. You can watch a video of their presentations below.
