New allegations have arisen of sexual abuse in Nauru including:
- Female asylum seekers were told by guards that they must expose their bodies in order to be allowed to shower for longer than two minutes.
- Guards offered illicit drugs, including marijuana, in return for sex from asylum seekers.
- One Australian guard ordered two underage asylum seekers to have sex in front of him. The incident happened six months ago and the guard has since left the island, it has been alleged.
- One asylum seeker was threatened that she would be raped once she leaves the centre by a guard and his wife.
- The asylum seeker, who asked not to be identified, said guards in the detention centre were saying to female asylum seekers: “If you want to take a shower for more than two minutes, you have to show your body.” She also said two guards told her: “When you get out of here, we have a plan for you. We are going to find you and f—- you.”
- Another asylum seeker alleged an Australian guard said he wanted to have sex with children on the island and forced two underage asylum seekers to perform sexual acts in front on him. "He tried to have sex with them," she said. "He then made the children have sex with each other." (X)
