UN Stand Ready to Assist Government with Manus Refugee Issue

The United Nations has expressed grave concerns about the human rights of asylum seekers and refugees on Manus Island.

Resident Coordinator, Roy Trivedy told EMTV News, they stand ready to assist.

However, he also appealed to the media to be responsible when reporting.

The chaotic situation on Manus Island has sparked concerns to the United Nation’s reminding both governments of Australia and Papua New Guinea their duty of care.

Assessments have been conducted on the new relocation site at East and West Lorengau and the United Nations will closely monitor the situation.

Trivedy also thanked the Governments of New Zealand and the United States for their offer.

Mr Trivedy claims there was no excessive force used during the joint operation when relocating the asylum seekers and refugees to the new centre.

And he also reminded the media to be responsible when reporting.

However, for a fair and accurate report on the Manus case, Trivedy said the media should be given access.
