Danish lawmakers 'denied access to Nauru migrant camp'

Under Australia's immigration policy, asylum seekers who try to reach the country by boat are turned back or sent to detention centres in the Pacific island states of Nauru and Papua New GuineaDanish lawmakers have dropped a planned visit to a controversial Australian immigration centre on the Pacific island of Nauru after two politicians who criticised the centre were denied access, a delegation member said Tuesday. Johanne Schmidt-Nielsen of the leftist Red-Green Alliance and Jacob Mark of the Socialist People’s Party had both criticised Canberra’s use of offshore settlements for asylum seekers and conditions at the Nauru camp before travelling to Australia last week. “After the Danish foreign ministry got involved in the case, Nauru authorities said on Tuesday that the decision (to deny access) remained in force,” Schmidt-Nielsen wrote on Facebook.
