NT govt leaders to face royal commission
Former politicians and guards involved in the Northern Territory's juvenile justice chain of command will face questioning from today as a royal commission resumes in Darwin.
Past and present detainees, former guards, police, health experts and Aboriginal elders are due to testify after footage of boys being teargassed was aired on national television.
Previous Country Liberals Party government corrections minister John Elferink, who was sacked after the footage emerged, is expected to take the stand when two weeks of hearings resume today, while former corrections commissioner Ken Middlebrook, who resigned after approving the gassing, will also give evidence.
