WAPU says Marron family ‘short changed’
The State’s Attorney-General says negotiations are still ongoing between the government and the family of Ryan Marron.
The police officer was left permanently disabled while stationed in the Kimberley, after contracting a mosquito-borne virus.
Constable Marron’s family says a $5.5 million ex-gratia payment from the government is not enough to cover his long-term care.
There’s also a concern about a fifth of the funds would be eaten up by trustee fees but the Attorney-General has told Gary Adshead on the 6PR Morning Show, that’s been accounted for.
