Nauru contract standoff causes chaos and confusion as refugee services left in limbo

A letter sent to employees of Host (contracted by the Nauruan government to provide casework and employment services to refugees and asylum seekers) and seen by Guardian Australia, revealed all people currently in regional processing centre 1 (supported accomodation including for the most ill among the cohort) “will be discharged… due to Canstruct and Wilson demobilising”.

“I’m sure this will be anxiety provoking for some clients and we may see some form of escalation in negative behaviour [from] some,” it said.
