Border security like ‘a war’ according to Minister

THE details of Operation Sovereign Borders need to be kept secret because it is more like a war than an immigration program, a Senate inquiry has been told.

>> Refugees caught swearing could be sent back to warzones

>> Did Morrison read critical documents relating to Operation Sovereign Borders?

Immigration Minister Scott Morrison fronted a Senate inquiry yesterday, accompanied by key officials involved in the operation, to face questions over why he has claimed secrecy over documents relating to the operation.

Australian Customs and Border Protection Service chief Michael Pezzullo, a key official involved in the operation, said that to reveal whether or not asylum seeker boats were being turned back or other details of the operation would be to put lives at risk and jeopardise the operation.
