Australia judge offers to swap places with refugee held offshore

A retired judge in Australia has offered to swap places with a refugee held in offshore detention.

Jim Macken, 88, has written to the immigration minister, claiming he is ready to live the rest of his life on Manus or Nauru, if a refugee can live in Australia.

His words are subtitled because he is using a voice box.
