Nauruan Govt and Dutton sing from same song sheet on abuse

THE Nauruan Government has echoed Australian Immigration Minister Peter Dutton's view that many claims of abuse at the island's immigration detention centre are fabricated.

Taking aim at the Greens and the Australian media's coverage of the alleged abuse, the Nauruan Government said on its Twitter account: "Most refugee &

advocate claims on Nauru fabricated to achieve goal to get to Aust. So called 'reports' based solely on these claims. Aust left wing media, Greens MPs and advocates still using refugees as pawns for their political agendas. Very sad."
