29 October 2014 (IRIN ), As Australia moves on with a plan to resettle some 1,000 refugees in Cambodia, its legislature is also debating a bill that would eliminate most references to the 1951 Refugee Convention from domestic legislation - a move critics say could bolster the government’s asylum seeker deterrence efforts.
