Prisoner transport under fire
A Corrective Services whistleblower has come forward to describe a litany of problems with private company SERCO's delivery of the prisoner transport contract. 'Tom' spoke to 6PR's Paul Entwistle about major problems that have jeopardised lives in WA's prisons.
Corrective Services Minister, Mr Terry Redman, responded to the allegations made by 'Tom'
Mr Redman acknowledged that there had been issues surrounding the transport of prisoners including the transport of a heart surgery patient by prison van instead of ambulance or sedan.
The minister denied the problems were as far reaching as Tom's testimony suggested.
Mr Redman made several statements that down played the seriousness of transport of the heart patient prisoner which incensed the family of the man involved.
Amongst the comments that angered the family were comments made by Mr. Redman that he only became aware of the situation of the transport in 2012.
The family contacted 6PR and supplied the letter that they sent to Mr. Redman's office graphically detailing the condition their father was returned to prison in November of 2011.
Paul Murray discussed the contents of the letter with 6PR's investigative journalist Paul Entwistle.
And NSW intends to privatise there transport unit if WA is doing 50000+ moves and 3 million kms a year with this many stuff ups how many inmates will die or escape over here on our 120000+ inmate movements a yearAaron Friday 29 June, 2012 - 9:54 PM
'Tom' is quite correct. This has been going on for years. Privatised transport companies fail dismally to co-ordinate with "in-house" prison officers.
Thanks, 'Tom', you've told us something some of us have been told and known for years.
Good for you.Dellas Monday 25 June, 2012 - 6:13 PM
