Last year, Australia’s Human Rights Commission released a report titled, “The Forgotten Children”. It was a national inquiry into children in immigration detention camps. Recently, Australia’s Prime Minister, Tony Abbott attacked the Human Rights Commission’s president, Gillian Triggs, claiming that the report was a “blatantly partisan, politicised exercise”.
