Federal government slammed over ‘outrageous waste’ of taxpayer money
The federal government has been slammed over a cfontract with Canstruct that has seen the company running Australia’s offshore processing regime on Nauru paid more than $1.4 billion over the past five years, despite no new asylum seekers arriving since 2014.
The number of asylum seekers on the island has also been steadily declining.

Canstruct is also a Liberal Party donor.
The shadow home affairs minister said the government needed to explain where the money was going.
