The decision not to lay charges against the Victorian police after The controversial death of Yorta Yorta woman Tanya Day while in custody has left family members heartbroken.
Daughter of Tanya, Apryl joins Dan Rennie on Lets Talk to express her frustration at the decision pointing out that police should not be investigating police.
Tanya, also known to many as Aunty Tanya was arrested after falling asleep on a V/Line train to Melbourne in December 2017. She fell and hit her head on a wall in a cell in Castlemaine police station and was left lying on the floor for three hours.
Victoria’s coroner found an indictable offense may have been committed by police officers, who she said had failed to adequately check on her safety, security, health, and welfare.
Journalist Chris Graham also weighs in on the case labelling the decision “unfair and unjust in every sense of the word”.
