WA indigenous woman prisoner in critical condition

The Department of Justice said the inmate had been found trying to access a vending machine and was ushered back to her cell, but it rejected reports she was “body slammed” by a guard.

“The hospitalisation the following day appears to be related to an existing medical condition,” the department said in a statement on Monday.

The Corrective Services commissioner referred the matter to the professional standards division for review and the investigation is ongoing.

“A preliminary assessment has found no evidence of any unreasonable force,” the department said.

The woman is being treated at St John of God Midland Hospital.
