PWD subjected to abuses in Australia’s prisons

Drop file here to send
People with disabilities are subjected to brutal abuses in Australia’s prisons, according to this new report.

A detailed Human Rights Watch investigation of 14 prisons in Western Australia and Queensland has delivered a scathing assessment of Australia’s treatment of prisoners with disabilities, particularly Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. This potentially puts Australia in breach of international standards, and the advice of Juan Méndez, the United Nations special rapporteur on torture, who has said solitary confinement “of any duration, on persons with mental disabilities is cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment”.

What do you think about this?
