The Coalition and the ALP have voted down a motion calling on the WA government to lift the conditions on Mr Marlon Noble’s release.
“Mr Noble lives with intellectual disability and despite not being found guilty of a crime, was imprisoned for a decade. This represents a massive flaw in our judicial system that must be resolved. Mr Noble still has conditions to his release.
“It is hugely disappointing that both the old parties today refused to call on the WA Government to lift those conditions, as called for by the United Nations Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
“People with cognitive impairment are being incarcerated indefinitely, I urge the WA Government to implement the recommendations of the committee”.
