Humiliation Of Prisoners

Kate Galloway and Allan Ardill
Queensland

Further indicating the lack of regard to fundamental human rights, convicted bikies are to be held in a ‘super-prison’, each in solitary confinement for 23 hours per day. The government has also announced a proposal requiring prisoners who are bikies to wear ‘fluorescent pink’ overalls, which Premier Campbell Newman explained as ostensibly because, ‘We know that telling them to wear pink is going to be embarrassing for them.’

KATE GALLOWAY teaches law at James Cook University, and ALLAN ARDILL teaches law at Griffith University. At the time of going to press, the majority of these Bills had been passed.
