detention centres

Does it matter who runs our offshore immigration detention centres?

The company that is responsible for running our offshore detention centres where asylum seekers harm themselves every four days could be sold to a Spanish company. Broadspectrum, formally known as Transfield, has been approached for a take-over by Madrid-based Ferrovial​. This bid raises some important questions about how foreign ownership will affect accountability and governance of the detention centres, as well as the treatment of the asylum seekers and refugees within them.
