The government of the State of Victoria in Australia runs a psychiatric prison system. You can be imprisoned on the say so of a couple of psychiatrists and kept there indefinitely. You can be, and many are, subjected to the most appalling and unusual practices which a more civilized state would instantly recognize as torture.
The prisoner has no recourse. The prisoner has no hope. The media turn a blind eye as it is an uncomfortable subject area. The parents can only write letters such as the one below. Human Rights are completely ignored in Victoria, Australia
The Hon. Lisa Neville
