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

By johnboy - 16 August 2011 0

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.
