New laws have been passed to restrict the movements of asylum seeker detainees released after a High Court decision banned indefinite detention. The detainees, including a child sex offender and murderers, will be monitored with ankle bracelets and mandatory curfews. They will also be barred from working with children and face restrictions around childcare centers and schools. Breaching the rules will result in a five-year jail sentence. Home Affairs Minister Clare O’Neil admitted the government would have preferred to maintain indefinite detention. Opposition leader Peter Dutton criticized Prime Minister Anthony Albanese for not being present during the passing of the laws.
