FED: Dutton confirms Manus timeline closure

Date: Thu 20 Jul 2017

Australia's offshore refugee processing centre on Manus Island will close by the end of October, Immigration Minister Peter Dutton has confirmed.

"Manus Island is due to close by the end of October," he told Sky News late Wednesday. "I've been very clear about that and that is what we're going to achieve."

The exact timing depends on Australia's deal with the US to accept refugees from the Papua New Guinea facility for resettlement after September 30.
