Win for Victorian Prisoners

Posted on: Thu 4 Mar 2021

In Australian prisons, inmates can be subjected to various surveillance and security measures, including random strip searches and drug and alcohol testing.

A recent Victorian high court decision will see changes to those practices in the state.

Breakfast’s Zoe Kounadis and Tom Mann spoke to RMIT University sessional lecturer in law Greg Barns to discuss the potential impact of this win and the significance of the changes.
