Buchanan cleared, so what’s going on at the Prison?

johnboy 16 August 2011

The Liberals’ Jeremy Hanson is calling for an investigation at the prison after the police investigation in to former jail superintendant Doug Buchanan was dropped:

“In May, Mr Buchanan was removed from his position as Superintendant of the Alexander Maconochie Centre,” Mr Hanson said.

“He alleged his sacking was partly due to his opposition to a needle exchange at the jail, and described himself as the “political fall guy.?

“By sacking Mr Buchanan before the AFP had a chance to investigate allegations made by a prisoner, serious questions need to be answered whether Simon Corbell followed due process and if Mr Buchanan was treated fairly.
