Would the Libs attack the ALP on this?

There are claims that the refugee processing centres in Indonesia, or at least some of them, have horrible conditions and brutal guards reminiscent of the film "Midnight Express". If so, it may not be long before a legitimate refugee in such a place would either sicken and die, or suffer terrible injuries.
That would put egg on the faces of KRudd and company.
But if the Libs got reliable information about something like that happening at a centre that received any funding at all from Canberra, would they pass it on to the press?
