NT Chief Minister Adam Giles
I’m in shock. Last night the Northern Territory Attorney-General responded in a new interview on ABC Lateline – but he’s refusing to intervene to help free Roseanne.
Despite the Australian Human Rights Commission’s decision to hold a hearing for Rosanne and an inquiry into the circumstance of her and up to 30 others, incarceration without charge, he still refuses to consider acting at this point (previous post re hearing). Her guardian Ian is naturally devastated and the commission will be calling both Minister Giles and his WA counterpart to the hearing to address the reasons for their decisions. However in the meantime Rosanne is still in prison and is still being held without charge.
Instead, Mr Giles tried to suggest it wasn’t his responsibility to help, said it was acceptable to keep someone in jail without conviction for their own protection – and unbelievably, he seemed entirely comfortable for Roseanne to remain in prison indefinitely.
