Allegations of abuse, humiliation and deprivation by prison staff have been made by Muslim inmates at a correction centre in Brisbane.
The Islamic Council of Queensland made a series of complaints about the behaviour of staff towards inmates at the Arthur Gorrie correctional centre (AGCC), the state’s largest prison.
In a letter sent to Queensland Corrective Services (QCS) in June, the council said that “on at least five occasions non-Muslim prisoners have been instructed to physically assault Muslim prisoners”, including one time “without the guard realising he was instructing another Muslim to commit the assault.”
