UN concerns about handling of Refugees on Manus Island

The United Nations Country Team is also calling on both the Australian and PNG Government to do something about the serious situation that these vulnerable group of people are now faced with.
The UNCT reminds the Government of Papua New Guinea and Australia of their obligations under International
Human Rights and Refugee Laws which must be upheld in the implementation of plans to close the RPC.
The UNCT is concerned about reports that the proposed new places for the relocation do not have sufficient capacity and are not adequately equipped to accommodate all the existing residents of the RPC.
While persons remain at the Centre, the discontinuation of all basic services puts this vulnerable group at serious risk of violation of their right to life. It also has serious implications on their physical and mental health.
