The result of using private firms to run detention centres

No direct supervision by Australian Authorities
Why not, is it because we don't want to know?

Serious incidents in Australian-run detention centres – including self-harm, assaults and infectious medical conditions – have risen sharply, with hundreds of injuries sustained by staff and asylum seekers reported to the federal workplace authority.
Incidents reported to Comcare jumped from 298 in 2012-13 to 449 in 2013-14.
Most of these incidents – 83% – relate to injuries sustained by asylum seekers in immigration detention centres on the mainland and on Manus Island and Nauru.
The logs highlight serious hazards at detention centres onshore and abroad.

We can always deny any knowledge if its out sourced to a private entity who are bound by the terms of a contract.
