Deportation of Iranian refugee from Fiji an act of thuggery, says lawyer

Loghman Sawari being held incommunicado in PNG, after being forced on to a plane by Fijian policeLoghman Sawari, the Iranian refugee summarily deported from Fiji, is being held incommunicado in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, more than 24 hours after he was snatched off the streets of Suva and forced on to a plane. His Fijian lawyer, Aman Ravindra-Singh, said Sawari’s forced deportation, in defiance of an agreement with the country’s immigration director, was the illegal work of “hoodlum and thugs”, while the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees has said of Sawari that it was “profoundly concerned for his welfare”.

Trump slams 'dumb' Obama refugee deal with Australia

President Donald Trump criticized a deal by the Obama administration to take in spurned refugees from Australia Wednesday night, tweeting that he planned to study the "dumb deal.""Do you believe it? The Obama Administration agreed to take thousands of illegal immigrants from Australia," Trump said on Twitter. "Why? I will study this dumb deal!"The "illegal immigrants" Trump references are predominantly-Muslim refugees who are seeking asylum and have been resettled in island camps on the Pacific nations of Nauru and Papua New Guinea. Former President Barack Obama's administration agreed to take in an unspecified number of the some 1,600 refugees after they were refused by Australia. The tweet came hours after Trump reportedly spoke with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull over the phone. The Washington Post reported earlier Wednesday that during the conversation Trump described the refugee agreement as "the worst deal ever" and accused Turnbull of seeking to export the "next Boston bombers," a reference to Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the two Kyrgyzstan-born American citizens behind the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings that killed three and injured over 260 people. The report also claimed Trump abruptly ended their conservation after telling the Australian prime minister that of all the conversation he'd had with world leaders Wednesday, "This is the worst call by far."In a follow-up by the Associated Press, the prime minister declined to comment on the report."It's better that these things — these conversations — are conducted candidly, frankly, privately," Turnbull said.The Australian leader also reiterated that that the relationship between Australia and the U.S. remained "very strong.""I can assure you the relationship is very strong," Turnbull said. "The fact we received the assurance that we did, the fact that it was confirmed, the very extensive engagement we have with the new administration underlines the closeness of the alliance. But as Australians know me very well: I stand up for Australia in every forum — public or private."

Australian Politicians Are Gloating About Their Nation’s Draconian Refugee Policy

Among all the Western democracies that have spoken out against the Trump administration’s controversial immigration order—banning all refugees for the next four months, and Syrian refugees indefinitely—one country is conspicuously absent: Australia. Australia has instead taken the opportunity to talk up its own draconian refugee policy, under which refugees arriving by boat are not only barred from entering the country, but also permanently banned from it, even if they have legitimate asylum claims. That has resulted in thousands being sent to detention centers on remote Pacific islands, where serious human rights violations against detainees have been documented. “[W]e are the envy of the world when it comes to strong border protection policies,” Australia’s treasurer Scott Morrison boasted on a radio show this week. “The rest of the world would love to have our borders and the way they are secured and the immigration arrangements we have put in place, particularly most recently, over the last three or four years… Really, the rest of the world is catching up to Australia.” Prime minister Malcolm Turnbull said it was not his place to comment on other countries’ immigration policies, but said that he was “proud” of Australia’s “strong [immigration] systems.” The fact that the fate of hundreds of refugees waiting to be potentially resettled in the US—under an agreement struck between the US and Australia under the Obama administration—remains up in the air, however, suggests that Trump’s policy is not simply just a domestic US affair. The offshore detention centers on Nauru (an island nation) and Manus Island (part of Papua New Guinea) were reopened under Julia Gillard’s government in 2012. During Labor prime minister Kevin Rudd’s administration in 2013, Australia struck a deal (widely known as the “PNG Solution”) with Papua New Guinea whereby asylum seekers arriving by boat in Australia would be settled in PNG instead. It also put the military in charge of its borders, under Operation Sovereign Borders. Rudd said the move would help curb people-smuggling. He also imposed a temporary ban on asylum seekers from Sri Lanka and Afghanistan in 2010, amid a surge in people attempting to get to Australia by boat. Australia has certainly won fans at home and abroad for its tough border policies. Elaine Pearson, the Australia director of Human Rights Watch, said its refugee policy continues because it has “popular support.” One poll taken last year found that almost half of Australians support a ban on Muslim immigrants. Abroad, far-right parties in Europe and mainstream Tories in the UK have also expressed admiration for Australia’s tough policies, wrote Australian columnist and academic Waleed Aly last year in the New York Times (paywall). In 2015, Australia ranked 25th in terms of the total number of refugees taken by a country, and 32nd on a per capita basis.

"РусАл" начинает крупный проект в Гвинее

"РусАл" и Гвинея согласовали условия разработки крупнейшего в мире бокситового месторождения "Диан-Диан". Разработка месторождения разделена на четыре этапа. "РусАл" получил месторождение бокситов в Гвинее Первый этап рассчитан до конца 2015 г. и предполагает строительство рудника мощностью 3 млн тонн бокситов в год. Кроме того, к этому сроку "РусАл" разработает ТЭО проекта по увеличению добычи бокситов до 9 млн тонн в год, а также ТЭО строительства глиноземного завода мощностью 1,2 млн тонн глинозема в год, сообщает "РусАл". Второй этап освоения месторождения завершится до конца 2019 г., добыча бокситов достигнет к этому времени 6 млн тонн в год. Третий этап, который "РусАл" также намерен завершить к концу 2019 г., предполагает строительство завода мощностью 1,2 млн тонн глинозема в год с соответствующим увеличением добычи бокситов на руднике. Соглашение предполагает возможность осуществления четвертого этапа, но это по усмотрению "РусАла", в зависимости от экономической ситуации в мире и потребностей компании. Четвертый этап предполагает расширение мощности глиноземного завода до 2,4 млн тонн в год и увеличение добычи бокситов до 12 млн тонн в год. "Подписание данного документа является важным шагом в развитии и укреплении взаимоотношений "РусАла" и руководства Гвинеи, свидетельствующим о растущем уровне доверия и взаимопонимания сторон. Условия работы, о которых мы договорились, выработаны с учетом интересов обеих сторон и отражают наш взгляд на перспективы мирового рынка алюминия. Я уверен, что обоюдовыгодный характер нашего сотрудничества будет способствовать улучшению инвестиционного климата в Республике Гвинея и укреплению конкурентоспособности "РусАла" как лидера мировой алюминиевой отрасли и одного из крупнейших инвесторов в эту африканскую страну", - отметил первый заместитель генерального директора "РусАла" Владислав Соловьев.
