Jan 2018 newsletter: OPCAT to help change attitudes as liberties decline

CLA celebrates one success as OPCAT is ratified, opening up jails and detention centres to inspection, but much work remains to expose aged care issues and combat declining liberties.  Members highlighted these two areas as important for CLA to concentrate on. as well as calling for more attention on ‘private’ matters, like euthanasia, image exploitation and privacy itself. Wrongful convictions, abuse and rapidly rising prison numbers are also of great concern.
