"D" is an 11 year old boy. You probably know a boy about his age – a son, a nephew, a grandson.

D was arrested on some charges and denied bail. So he ended up in Youth Detention in Queensland. That’s when he was allegedly bashed and assaulted by some guards and ended up with two black eyes. Now his mother suffers from stress and difficulty sleeping. The NJP is investigating whether we can take action against the Queensland Government for breach of their duty of care and further, to highlight and ultimately improve the welfare and safety standards for all children in youth detention.
