MOSCOW, June 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s commissioner for human rights said Australia should take a serious attitude towards ensuring the rights of refugees.
“Australia made amendments to its legislation that expand the powers of special services. We note the reaction by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, the UN High Commissioner of Human Rights and Amnesty International saying Austria systematically violates its obligations under the international law,” the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and the Supremacy of Law, Konstantin Dolgov wrote on his Twitter microblog on Wednesday.
“Amnesty International reports on the dire conditions at Australian-run detention centers,” he said.
According to Amnesty International, “harassment, surveillance, house arrest and imprisonment of human rights defenders are on the rise and censorship of the Internet and other media has grown. Repression of minority groups, including Tibetans, Uighurs and Mongolians, and of Falun Gong practitioners and Christians who practice their religion outside state-sanctioned churches, continues.”
One man was killed and 77 injured after police in Papua New Guinea opened fire on rioting asylum seekers in an Australian-run detention camp last night. Thirteen people suffered serious injuries, two of which has been flown to Australia for treatment, after the second riot this week at a detention center on Manus Island in Papua New Guinea.
