Report and recommendations – First Nations people in custody

High, but not high enough, on the country's human rights agenda is the issue of Aboriginal deaths in custody.

Two men have been arrested after a brawl in the Casino central business district in which a victim was punched and kicked while he was on the ground defenceless.

Police allege the two Casino men aged 22 and 24 became involved with an argument with some people in the carpark of a Casino Service Station at 8.30pm on Saturday night.

This has resulted in a victim being tackled to the ground.

Police said the 22 and 24-year-old then kicked and punched the victim in the head while he was defenseless, and then fled the scene.

Both men were arrested and charged with Assault Occasioning Actual Bodily Harm In Company, and Affray.

The 22 year old was bail refused by police and granted conditional bail by the Courts.

He will appear in Casino Local Court in October.

The 24 year old was granted conditional bail and will appear at Casino Local Court in November
