FreeMuslim Association Inc., has learnt about data confirming the deterioration of the situation of dozens of Iraqi refugees held in an Australian island for years. Australia should rescue and deal with them in accordance with international human rights standards.
A source confirmed that the 50 Iraqi refugees being held on the Island of Manaus are living in difficult conditions. This suffering could be ended if the Australian government would stop refusing to transport them from Manos to a country who welcomes them such as New Zealand, Canada or the United States of America.
The Australian government’s position is in clear contradiction to all international standards and laws of the rights of refugees. Australia should provide them with the opportunity to give these refugee’s a better quality of life by saving them from this dire situation.
Finally, FreeMuslim Association Inc., asks all human rights organizations to take urgent action in helping these refugees as quickly as possible.
