The possession of USB sticks has been banned, or at least limited, at Australia’s onshore detention centres, according to a refugee advocate. At the Melbourne Immigration Transit Accommodation, the USB memory sticks were confiscated, with detainees now only allowed one USB per person. A raid at Brisbane Immigration Transit Accommodation this week has also removed USBs, which were previously allowed. It has been said that no explanations were given for the change in rules.
