Indigenous Social Justice Alliance (ISJA) meet with the Attorney General Greg Smith in Sydney, 23 April 2013 with the Hickey family regarding deaths in custody.
Indigenous Social Justice Alliance (ISJA) including Raj Jackson meet with the Attorney General at Governor Macquarie Tower, Sydney with the Hickey family regarding the death in custody of Thomas ‘TJ’ Hickey in 2004.
'After initially refusing to meet with Ms Gail Hickey, mother of 17 year old TJ Hickey, to seek redress of the corrupt police investigation against the Redfern police followed by an equally corrupt inquest that exonerated the Redfern police in the death of TJ, NSW attorney-general, Greg Smith, has now found a 20 minute window to meet with her and ISJA to answer our concerns. We look forward to the meeting.
Equally surprising was the offer of another 20 minute window for the Bowraville 3 families to also meet with him to allow discussion on their issues of the homicide of their three children some 20 years ago.
Will all four families finally get a taste of justice? That is in part up to Greg Smith and the O’Farrell government making the honest and brave decision to allow justice to finally be done. However, is also in part up to us, surrounding the victims’ families with our unabated decision of achieving justice for them.
We can all wish, hope or fight for a just decision to be made.'
