Canberra Liberals question safety of female prisoners in with men

Category: Capital Radio News

Female detainees in Canberra's high-security prison are reportedly being harassed and left traumatised after being forced to stay inside the male section of the prison.

Women in the Alexander Maconochie Centre have been placed in cells in the heart of the men's area, due to a lack of other appropriate accommodation.

Shadow Minister for Corrections, Giulia Jones, says some women have even been forced to confront men who have assaulted them.
