By now you've probably seen the disturbing footage of Australian 17-year-old Dylan Voller, hooded, strapped by the neck to a chair and left in isolation for nearly two hours.
According to the ABC's Four Corners, the shocking vision of Voller was uncovered last week. It shows the teenager strapped to the chair in March 2015.
On May 24 this year, Elferink introduced the "Youth Justice Amendment Bill" to the Northern Territory parliament. Elferink said the legislation was focused on making the use of the chairs "far less nebulous than what is currently in place".
Labor opposed the legislation. Opposition corrections spokesperson Natasha Fyles repeatedly cited departmental briefings and two recent reviews into what was happening at Don Dale.
"If the government is serious about creating a functional detention centre it must ensure that the recommendations from the Vita report and the children’s commissioner’s report are fully implemented," said Fyles.
