This is a disgraceful and cynical exercise of Australia diverting responsibility and hushing up embarrassing facts.

Morrison says it's PNG's responsibility. Pato says he was leaned on by the Australian Government. The PNG police say the AFP won't help them. G4S refuse to talk.

Either way both Governments are responsible for attempting to quash any independent inquiry into the Manus incidents, and hiding any evidence that may emerge - even to the extent of deporting an Australian lawyer, silencing critics, using legal contortions to inhibit critical investigation, etc. (See PNG Attitude passim).

One man was murdered here, and over 60 injured. If this had occurred in Australia, would there be such a cover-up? It seems the PNG Government can be easily bought, and Australia is offering the bribe.

Disgusting.
