excerpt from the inquiry into treatment of children in australian detention centres
  • NAOMI SHARP [COUNSEL ASSISTING THE INQUIRY]: Are you aware that some children have tried to poison themselves or ingest harmful substances?
  • NAOMI SHARP: Are you aware that some children are banging their heads against walls?
  • PETER YOUNG: Yeah, that's a common method of self-harm. ... It's quite clear that we've got a large number of children with significant mental distress and disorder in this population.
  • NAOMI SHARP: What has the department [of Immigration]'s reaction been to your report?
  • PETER YOUNG: Sort of reacted with alarm and have asked us to withdraw these figures from our reporting.
  • NAOMI SHARP: I beg your pardon?
  • PETER YOUNG: They've asked us to withdraw the figures from our reporting.
