Still Waters Posted Wednesday at 03:13 PM #1 Share Posted Wednesday at 03:13 PM (IP: Staff) · A 13-year-old Indigenous Australian boy spent 45 days in solitary confinement while being held for minor offences, in the latest youth justice case to raise human rights concerns in Queensland. The boy - referred to as "Jack" - was released on probation last week after 60 days in custody at Cleveland Youth Detention Centre in Townsville. He is understood to have spent 22 consecutive days in isolation. Queensland's human rights chief says the case may have broken state laws. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-australia-64960479 2 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
