10 NATION MONDAY JUNE 22 2015 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 Ms Wilson said. It was also common knowledge that there was bartering and trading of sexual favours within the camp, she said. Ms Wilson believes profound damage has been caused to nearly every single man, woman and child in detention on the island because of prolonged deprivation of freedom, abuse of power, uncertainty of future, disempowerment, loss of privacy and inadequate health services. Nauru is a seedy, toxic and dangerous place, Greens senator Sarah Hanson-Young said. Refugee sex films alleged CANBERRA: Aus t ra l i an detention centre guards allegedly paid female refugees on Nauru for sex and circulated videos of the encounters, a former social worker claims. Charlotte Wilson, who was a case worker with Save the Children until February, made the explosive allegation in a submission to a Senate inquiry examining abuse at the detention centre. She said there were reports of solicitation between female refugees and Wilson Security guards. I was told that this was acknowledged in management meetings between service providers and that it was also established that these acts had been filmed and circulated around Wilson (Security) staff, she wrote. Prostitution is legal on Nauru so no action had been taken against staff members, These acts had been filmed and circulated Man critical after melee SYDNEY: A man remains in a critical condition after hitting his head on the footpath during a fight at Sydneys Darling Harbour. Police say the 25-year-old was out with friends at Cockle Bay Wharf in the early hours of yesterday when a fight developed with another group of three men. They say the 25year-old was hit several times before he fell, hitting his head on the brick promenade. He was rushed to St Vincents hospital with serious head injuries. Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward. Shorten says no trade-off CANBERRA: Oppos i t ion Leader Bill Shorten has acknowledged its entirely possible businesses chipped in union members fees while he headed the Australian Workers Union. But he yesterday denied he traded away workers conditions in exchange for direct payments to unions. Mr Shorten says hes 100 per cent relaxed about his record as a union boss as he prepares to front the unions royal commission on July 8. He said he was proud of his record as a modern and moderate union leader. Hsing Hsing celebrates his 40th birthday at Perth Zoo Picture: ROSS SWANBOROUGH PERTH: Diabetes prevented Hsing Hsing from getting cake for his 40th birthday, but Perth Zoos beloved alpha male orang-utan still enjoyed a special treat to mark the milestone. Recognised by his dreadlocks and a vocal call that can often be heard across South Perth, Hsing Hsing yesterday devoured boxes covered in yoghurt and full of snacks, including carrots and nuts. He then reused the boxes to take cover when the rain started to pour. Senior primate keeper Kylie Bullo said Hsing Hsing had been trained to present his arm to keepers so they can give him insulin and check his glucose levels every day. We do monitor his diet very closely because of his diabetes, but he still gets a very wide variety of food, she said. We do hope Hsing will be with us for many years to come.
