Senator HANSON-YOUNG (South Australia) (21:28): The current restrictions on media access to Australian detention centres were drafted using media restrictions to Guantanamo Bay as a model. That is the truth of the matter. It has been revealed through FOI from the minister's office and the immigration department that they were based on the guidelines for media access to Guantanamo Bay. I would like to know from this minister: will these offshore processing facilities be under the same media access guidelines?
