Fiji: Human Rights

Senator MILNE (Tasmania—Leader of the Australian Greens) (12:06): 

I move:

That the Senate—
(a) condemns the apparent torture and inhumane and degrading treatment of detainees in Fiji, as recently reported in an online video; and
(b) calls on the interim Fiji Government to:
(i) publicly condemn the use of torture and uphold international conventions protecting civil and political rights, and
(ii) establish an independent and transparent investigation into the events.

Question agreed to.
