Treatment of woman held at Bandyup Prison a clear violation of human rights

Greens spokesperson for Corrective Services and Mental Health Hon Alison Xamon MLC has expressed her deep concern about the treatment of a distressed woman transported from Bandyup Women’s Prison to Graylands Hospital.

Ms Xamon said she intended to question the Government about the incident, following reports in the media that the woman “was transported naked and handcuffed” and “had menstrual bleeding” during the 40 minute journey between the prison and the Frankland Centre at Graylands Hospital in August 2017.
