Since this Yoorrook hearing in May 2023, another First Peoples man has died in custody in Victoria.
There have now been 34 deaths in custody in Victoria since the 1991 Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody.
Each of those people was loved by their family, friends and community. They are deeply missed.
During questioning by Commissioner Travis Lovett, the Minister for Police, The Hon. Anthony Carbines MP said that he accepted that no one has been held accountable for these deaths.
