Following the death of a man at Port Phillip Prison on Wednesday, the family have asked the media to respect their privacy as they process their grief.
The following lines are attributable to Gunnai, Gunditjmara and DjabWurrung Senator Lidia Thorpe:
“These are real people's lives which have just been torn apart, again, by this system. The grief, the pain and the loss is overwhelming. The family demand respect and privacy as they process their grief.”
