Amnesty International condemns the Manus solution...

"The Pacific Solution was domestically and internationally condemned as an inhumane policy which breached Australia's human rights obligations," Amnesty International Australia refugee spokesman Dr Graham Thom said in a statement today.

"Bizarrely, the very same government which dismantled the failed Pacific Solution is now reviving it."

Dr Thom said there was very little difference between sending asylum seekers to Manus Island or Nauru.

"In both cases Australia is outsourcing its humanitarian obligations to developing countries and worsening the trauma of refugees who have fled conflict, persecution and torture."
