The Australian, Afghan Memorandum of Understanding
What will it mean for refugees?
A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was recently signed between the Australian Government, the Government of Afghanistan and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, permitting forcible deportation of refugees from Australia back to Afghanistan. The agreement includes provision for sending back children; unaccompanied minors and other Afghan children who have become separated from their families.There is no way such and agreement can guarantee the safety of any asylum seekers returned to Kabul. It is an agreement with an illegitimate and corrupt government propped up by Australian and Nato forces.
