Libs welcome immediate DCS investigation
Friday 3 June, 2011
The State Liberal Opposition welcomes an immediate investigation into the death of a prisoner last night.
“Minister Tom Koutsantonis must also explain how a prisoner on suicide watch managed to commit suicide while under supervision last night in Yatala Prison.
“According to the Department of Correctional Services, the prisoner was being monitored for risk of self harm.
“This is the latest controversy for Mr Koutsantonis in his capacity as Correctional Services Minister.
“I welcome the independent investigation of DCS procedures into this incident.
“Mr Koutsantonis is lurching from one controversy to another, following more damaging claims of bullying and intimidation within this Department.”
