From Morning Report, 7:38 am on 13 July 2017

An Egyptian asylum seeker who laid assault charges against Serco staff at Christmas Island detention centre says police whitewashed their investigation of it. New Zealanders who posted the footage of the incident to facebook say they were taken to segregation and accused of trying to start a riot. All 3 detainees say there is no one they can complain to about the abuse within the detention centre who will take it seriously.
