In the ongoing shambles of ACT Corrections the ABC now reports that the old Quamby youth detention centre is going to be used to house people who probably won’t try and run away.
- “Acting Corrections Minister Simon Corbell says the former Quamby site will be used for periodic detention prisoners and low security inmates.
“Juveniles from the old Quamby site were only relocated to Bimberi in December,” he said.
“Obviously that’s a relatively short period to allow over Christmas and New Year for inspection of the facility, but I can confirm that the government is moving today to authorise the use of Quamby for overflow from our existing remand centres.””
Meanwhile the most perfect and peaceful prison in the world lies just out of reach at Hume. But that’s OK, it’s been officially opened.
