Asylum seekers in Manus Island detention centre were advised to move to an alternative location, said Acting Prime Minster for Australia, Julie Bishop on Saturday (November 11).

Speaking in Perth, Bishop assured essential services would be provided to refugees. She later added “Those who were found not to be refugees, who were not owed protection, should go home.”

Video obtained by Reuters showed authorities dismantling water catchment tents that were built since the centre ceased restoring food and water to the compound. Another video showed refugees setting up a fence made of fabric.

Nearly 600 men have barricaded themselves more for than 10 days since the closure of the centre on October 31.

The men fear violent reprisals from the Manus island community if they move from the camp to transit centers, pending possible resettlement to the United States.
