The curious case of #Paladin ⁦the company that won a $423M Home Affairs contract with no tangible assets or experience while registered to a beach shack in my electorate. ⁦#auspol #estimates

The bloke who personally and immediately intervenes with au pair girls’ visas has no oversight of a $400 million contract?  Bullshit.  #auspol

“The Department has nothing further to add.” Oh yes it bloody well does . The arrogance and contempt for the public interest is breathtaking.

I really would like to ask the media and other people who have ability to investigate -if you are truly against corruption please follow the contracts between Home Affairs and the companies on Manus&Nauru. Try to find an answer to the question: how did they spend billions?#auspol

There is big corruption here on Manus in the contracts between Aus gov & the companies it pays to maintain this system. It's time to investigate all the contracts incl. Paladin & IHMS. If Aus taxpayers knew how much corruption it would bring this gov down

Such a corrupt system on Manus and Nauru. They’ve spent billions which needs to be investigated. I always say, if there’s a Royal Commission the Australian ppl will be shocked - first for the torturing and killing and second for the scale of corruption in the contracts.#auspol

.@barriecassidy says the Government talks about rapists and murderers when discussing the #medevac bill, but hasn't been able to identify anyone on Manus Island or Nauru who has been convicted of those crimes. "It reflects on all of them and it just seems to be unfair" News Breakfast's photo on Manus

They’ve spent billions on Manus Island and Nauru for years, always under secrecy and blocking information by claiming ‘national security.’ This gov is lying to the public and media. It’s time to investigate - how did they spend this money? #auspol

In today's edition of the #PaladinAffair Home Affairs seeks to exempt its $423 million Manus Island contract from FOI scrutiny and exclude it from "Commonwealth procurement rules".

No matter your politics This has got to raise concerns. First, the Great Barrier Reef Foundation gets almost half billion dollars #GBRF Now, #paladin Both insignificant companies given mega-tax dollars with no due process. #FedIcac #auspol

“We know exactly who they are.” “It’s not because they are bad people.” Then PM Malcolm Turnbull talking to Donald Trump in 2016, about the refugees and asylum seekers on Manus and Nauru - the same people we’re now being told could be dangerous criminals.

That’s right @barriecassidy thanks for telling it like it is. I know of not one single refugee on Manus or Nauru who has been convicted of a sex crime. What I do know is it’s causing incredible distress to the men on Manus & Nauru to be smeared like this. #MedevacBill

Go on . .? You think there are 10,000 refugees - most of them criminals - now paying people smugglers because they are eager to spend seven years on Manus, in the hope they will then get to Oz? This is your considered view? And it's all because Oz is showing decency? Tell all!

Scottie doesn't have to re-open Christmas Island - it's either a stunt - or he has something nasty in store for the hapless men on Manus in an effort to side-step the obligations of the legislation. Have we ever experienced such an evil PM?

We need to bear in mind that there are other youths who are on #Manus and #Nauru who were children when they arrived by are now technically "adults" as they have turned 18 while in detention

Here is an example of the fraud and corruption of this system running the detention prisons on Manus & Nauru—one out of hundreds.

He’s just exercising his unfettered power to move them at whim. From where they will be ineligible for enhanced medical treatment because the Phelps Bill deals with people on Nauru and Manus? Isn’t he a bag of tricks? This is what the opening of CI is all about. #EvilBastard

Another @FinancialReview piece on Paladin/Manus. To put the multi-year $423m in contracts they have been awarded in context: #PNG's entire law and justice budget in 2018 was roughly $445m.

A secretive firm making $500m providing security for refugees at Manus Island was a huge story that got lost in the drama of this week's historic asylum seeker bill, writes @latingle Tingle. #auspol

Explains the filibuster last year to prevent the bill from getting through. No clients on Manus= no profit.

@BehrouzBoochani These are the current contracts listed on AusTender for the big four companies on #Manus - Paladin, NKW Holdings, Pacific International Hospital and JDA Wokman. Obscene amounts of money involved - where is it going?? #PaladinAffair

I'm old enough to remember when "national security" actually meant keeping an eye out for warships & nuclear missiles headed your way, in no way related to torturing & killing refugees who's only crime was to seek safety while brown. #auspol #MediVacBill #manus #nauru #XmasIsland

Dave Hodgson – Head of Paladin that got an uncontested 439 million contract for Manus. He’s a evangelical prosperity gospel cult member. Have a good look at this & it’s links. He talks a great game. Just don’t step out of line folks. R we a sheep nation?

@james00000001 @Huw_Merlin @SkyNewsAust There is more to this than off-shore detention centres. How many Australians are aware that at a recent AIPAC meeting Christopher Pyne signed off on a joint US-Australian military base with Mike Pence to be built on MANUS ISLAND. MANUS detention centre was always going elsewhere.

15 Feb, 07:00 AM UTC
@Kon__K @jaci_wiley @ASRC1 The HCA has declared that the Australian Government has a “duty of care” to the asylees on Manus and Nauru. Such a duty of care demands that medical care be provided. Government has not complied. And now, with medivac bill, and Christmas Is, still will not comply @drkerrynphelps

@Bradjstone80 @dgalegra60 @fraser_anning @drkerrynphelps All of those on Manus are chancers and frauds. Most on Nauru the same but at least when they "fled" some of them cared enough about their families to bring them with. We should hand the lot over to the UN on the proviso they get to live in a UN camp in the M/East

How a soldier of fortune landed a $423 million Manus Island contract - Dutton claims no knowledge. Why seek to save it from FOI ?? Very odd. Big story.

@SkyNewsAust @billshortenmp There's one doctor for seven illegal immigrants on Nauru and Manus islands. There's also one mental health officer for every 12 queue jumpers. Why do they need to come here for an assessment ?
15 Feb, 05:42 AM UTC
@phbarratt Okay, because IHMS are hiring for an immediate start, and PNG immi sources say the men from Manus will be sent there. And this is incredibly bad. IHMS will let HEALTHY people die, and have.
15 Feb, 07:57 AM UTC
@phbarratt Paul, Christmas Is was excised from the Migration Zone. Could it be possible it contravenes the bill to send people from Manus and Nauru there?

@BenTroppo @hazardplane6 @Abdulaziz_Ada Ben Troppo - You are totally ignorant and very naive of what goes on in Australia. Yes it’s racist. “Operation sovereign borders” is racist. The black sites of Manus and Nauru and the purposeful torture for political purposes is racist. Detention regime is racist, completely.
