A concentration camp with cleaners cleaning several times a day?

Michael Coates [ not his real name] was an ex-soldier looking for new challenges when he answered an ad for “interesting work” in the South Pacific. He found himself in the controversial Regional Processing Centre on Manus Island.

In a number of interviews with the media about his new book Manus Days: The Untold Story of Manus Island which will be released on January 24, he revealed that the centre which Advocates and politicians back in Australia described as a concentration camp actually had cleaners cleaning it several times a day. The accommodation provided had previously been staff accommodation so was not 5 star but was perfectly acceptable.

The problem he said was the behaviour of the majority of the men who he described as  Iranians from middle-class privileged backgrounds. He said that they were the ethnic group that caused most of the trouble with locals and staff and who stirred up the advocates back in Australia. They are the kind of violent and illegal migrants that Iranian immigrant Golriz Ghahraman and PM Jacinda Ardern are so keen to inflict on New Zealand society.

Far from being genuine refugees, he described them as “Middle-class party boys” One was from Dubai and was fleeing the consequences of killing a man while partying in Bali.

How did they treat the local population? He said they Intimidated and threatened them as well as the local staff. They rioted and took drugs. There were rapes of other migrants inside the showers and assaults with iron bars.

He said he felt sorry for the genuine refugees who were not Iranian and who got tarred with the same brush.They, however, were in the minority.
