UNHCR on asylum interviews showing Cash For Turnbacks

Asylum Seekers had first hand views of cash being handed to the crew given cash for turning their boat back to Indonesia. The crew were also interviewed at length. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees has no doubt that this took place.

The Abbott gov's "turn back the boats" (ie "stop the boats") policy has exploded internationally in it's face. The Abbott gov now finds itself completely out of it's depth. Pun intended :)
