Death at the Prison

By johnboy - 13 August 2009 44

Early reports are coming though on the radio of a death at the Alexander Maconochie Centre.

Just as long as human rights were complied with along the way eh?

More details as they come to hand.

UPDATE 1: The ABC’s initial report is online:

    An ACT Government spokeswoman has confirmed a person has died at the Alexander Maconochie Centre at Hume.

    She said further details on the jail’s first death in custody are likely to be released later today.

UPDATE 2: Hearing it was a remandee, in his 40s, found dead in his cell this morning.

UPDATE 3: The Canberra Times is reporting that the dead man was the epileptic Andreas Bulig, 44. He was on remand following charges of “assault occasioning actual bodily harm, threatening a witness and breaching bail over a series of fights with his neighbours”.

Of some concern is this bit:

    Bulig had applied to the Supreme Court for bail on July 23, saying he lacked access to his epilepsy medicine at the Hume prison.

What’s Your opinion?

“wat about lexi becs other girlfriend noone mentions her was she there she was hotttt but”

Another friend of (unidentified person) is often overlooked as being present (somewhere) …. (unidentified person) was very attractive.

I think she may have posted in the wrong thread. She might want to be in the Charnwood stabbing thread.

If you’re going to be the spokesperson for this group of crims, perhaps you could communicate in a language others will understand. English will do.

Maybe if his human right to privacy was taken away and a camera allowed in the cells (bedsitters), Corrections may have been able to have observed the guy in peril and possibly even have saved his life…

Hang on… this Human Rights Act may have some positives in it after all
