6. Over the past 6 years many journalists and advocates were deported from Manus. No one has access to Nauru. It shows how secrecy is a key part of this exile policy. A question remains: how many years are they going to continue to this barbaric policy?

5: Last night the immigration officers & police came & asked him to leave PNG. What is important is that he didn’t breach any law & was in here legally. He was very polite and respectful at all times & when he asked about entering the camp he was fully on a public road.

4.After 10min we were walking on the street & a police car stopped us, with 4 heavily armed police inside. They again asked for the passport and told the Senator to get in the car to the police station.When he asked if he was under arrest they said no. So he did't get in the car.

3.The officer took the passport & when Senator politely asked for it back he disappeared for about 30min, then came back & returned the passport & started shouting again that he must leave PNG. Senator McKim asked for an official deportation notice but he refused.

2: The immigration officer took the passport & started shouting aggressively at Senator . He accused him of misrepresenting the situation in Manus & said he must leave PNG. He was strangely very angry & insulting.

1.This statement released by PNG immigration. Some info about what actually happened yesterday: We went to East Lorengau camp & Senator very politely asked the officers at front gate if it’s possible to enter the camp. He showed his passport.

Just had a visit from two Immigration Department officials and been instructed to leave PNG. I will accept this deportation and leave tomorrow. But no matter where I am I will never stop fighting to expose the truth about the humanitarian calamity of offshore detention

It is not the first time that people have been stopped from visiting Manus or deported. Two weeks ago my translator Omid Tofighian was deported from Port Moresby. Before the election an Australian comedian Dan was deported too and many over past six years.

I was granted a 12 month multiple entry visa by the PNG government and am here legally. Every Kina spent here on refugees has been authorised by the Australian parliament, and there should be accountability on how it is spent. That accountablilty and truth telling is my job.

I now have my passport back, but police and immigration then stopped me on the street and I’ve been informed that a deportation notice will be issued to me later today.

Senator from Green party asked permision to enter East Lorengau camp on Manus. Permision has been denied and his passport was taken. Immigration officer is very angry at him because of his reporting from Manus island.

There are many other Afghan refugees currently indefinitely detained in onshore and offshore prisons, languishing up to 6 years after arriving by sea despite the fact all are refugees and none can be safely returned back due to risk of torture or death All should be in community

"Silent Deaths". Another individual dies from Australia's regime of psychological torture. Dozens of people have lost their lives from systematic torture in Australian onshore detention. Australia maintains a position on the UN Human Rights Council
