Saturday 18th May, 2024: Dechlan Brennan, Plea to Victorian Govt. Exorbitant Cost of Prisoner Phone Calls

Nevena and Fiona are joined live in the studio by Dechlan Brennan, ppen letter urges Victorian government to cover the “exorbitant” cost of prisoner phone calls

A coalition of legal and community groups used Mother’s Day to call for the Victorian government to fully fund the cost of phone calls for incarcerated people.

In an open letter addressed to the Treasurer, the Minister for Corrections, and the Minister for Children, the thirteen organisations said they were disappointed there was no funding in the recent state budget to subsidise calls for prisoners.

This is despite the Yoorrook Justice Commission recommending in their interim report last year that Aboriginal prisoners be able to “make telephone calls for free or at no greater cost than the general community”.
