Ardern admits she may be seen as "an irritant" over Manus Island

The Catholic Bishop Conference is calling on the PNG and Australian Government to assist the 492 refugees and asylum seekers in Manus with basic needs.

The group says the Manus detention centre was closed on October 31, leaving the people there with no food, water, power or medical care for the past two weeks.

Four hundred and twenty-one refugees and asylum seekers holed up in the Manus Island detention centre have been told by Papua New Guinea's government they must leave on Monday or face forcible eviction, as another legal challenge goes to court, and global pressure continues to mount on Australia to intervene.

Many have been held by Australia for years on the island, under the country's policy of detaining asylum seekers offshore while their applications are processed.

Commander Yapu said about 100 men left the centre over the weekend.

"Our advice to them is that common sense must prevail", Manus Police Commander David Yapu said on Monday.

The men have been warned they would be moved by force in a two-page notice signed by the Papua New Guinea Immigration and Citizenship Service Authority on Thursday with a deadline to leave on Saturday.

Some show the officials pulling down makeshift shelters, and others show them smashing taps on large water tanks and water gushing from broken fixtures.

The Detention Centre remains restricted to the public and media personnel.

"What Australia is doing is inhumane, and that is why we are here locking down the Australian high commission", she said. Six men have died on Manus Island under our watch. The government argue that it deters asylum seekers from attempting a perilous sea voyage to Australia.

"It is time for the New Zealand government to do more than offer to take 150 refugees from Manus or Nauru". No matter what label you put on it there is absolute need and there is harm being done, ' she said on Sunday.

"The safety of both the refugees and government workers plus staff of leading agencies is not to be taken for granted given the tension that is now being expressed by the locals on Manus Island", he said. I think it's clear that we don't see what's happening there as acceptable, that's why the offer's there'.
