Australian immigration detention: the Palmer Report

The Palmer Report into the immigration detention of Australian citizen Cornelia Rau has been released.

The report exposes serious cultural and organisational problems in the Immigration Department.

The Main Findings conclude that compliance officers had "little or no formal training and a poor understanding of the legislation they are enforcing". "Officers lack basic investigative and management skills". "There was a failure of executive leadership".

It’s a tragedy.
