Maori murdered by prison guards

Josen Tofia Mataia, 32, who was on remand at a jail near Rockhampton, “died while being restrained by guards” at the Capricornia Correctional Center.

The Prisoners Legal Service (PLS) spokeswoman Matilda Alexander told the ABC that other inmates “saw the prisoner being dragged along by between four and six officers in an inappropriate restraint position.”

“There were witnesses to it and I certainly don’t think that there’s any doubt about the fact that he died while being restrained,” she said.
