Guardian article " Manus Island rejected asylum seekers to be deported by PNG"

People who are issued the removal notice are to remain in detention in the mean time, but are warned they “may be held in any location, including correctional institutions, while your removal is being effected”.
In a section headed “Do I have any other options?” the document states “No”.
“You do not have the option of remaining in Papua New Guinea,” it says. “You do not have the option of going to Australia. You will never go to Australia.”
Asylum seekers held on Manus Island who are successful in applying for refugee status are supposed to be resettled in PNG, under the Rudd government’s Regional Resettlement Agreement of July 2013. 
According to a statement by the PNG prime minister, Peter O’Neill, just 129 detainees had been granted refugee status as of May this year. Another 400 had their refugee application rejected and had been deported.
