AUCKLAND (Radio 95bFM The Wire/Southern Cross/Pacific Media Watch): Australia's controversial offshore detention centres in the Pacific are under the spotlight on the Pacific Media Centre's weekly Southern Cross radio programme.

Pacific Media Watch freedom project editor Kendall Hutt explores the connections between human rights abuses on Manus and Nauru with an Auckland protest last week.

Hutt also speaks to The Wire host Amanda Robinson about the phenomenon of "ghost voters" in PNG's 2017 general election and all of Pacific Media Watch's latest news about the elections in PNG and Timor-Leste.
