How we wrongly locked away 60 people
The Age reports on Australians wrongly detained by Immigration authorities. The whole system is blighted by over-zealousness but this takes the cake! Up to 60 Australians have fallen victim to this culture of locking people up on suspicion. A Royal Commission is needed to clean up the nasty mess created on the watch of Ruddock and Vanstone. These politicians should be made accountable for the horrors they have unleashed, but of course this won't happen under Howard because he has his own fingerprints all over it.
