On Nauru, the report says: “It appears that post traumatic distress disorder (PTSD) and depression have reached epidemic proportions . . . UNHCR anticipates that mental illness, distress and suicide will continue to escalate in the immediate and foreseeable future.”

The refugees are not only being treated cruelly and inhumanely by the Australians, but they’re also subject to random attacks by locals.

Adding to the insanity is that according to Labour senator Lisa Singh, who is on secondment to the United Nations agency, it is costing Australian taxpayers $610,000 per year per refugee to inflict this cruelty on the defenceless refugees.
