Australia has dismissed newly-released data showing human rights violations, including child abuse at its offshore detention centers.

Australia’s immigration minister, Peter Dutton, accused asylum seekers held in Pacific camps of making false allegations of sexual assaults. He said asylum seekers are also deliberately harming themselves in order to get into Australia. Dutton’s comments are the first since British daily Guardian published over two thousand leaked reports of trauma and abuse at the Australian-funded Nauru detention centre. The data contained graphic details of sexual assaults, child abuse and attempted self-harm. The revelations have drawn wide criticism at home and abroad.
