Mother says more prisoners will die because of no prosecution

From Checkpoint, 5:39 pm on 3 February 2015

The police have decided ultimately to lay no charges over the death of an Otago prisoner, a decision his mother says means more prisoners will die. The police told Victoria Davis today there'll be no change from last year's call not to prosecute, because a Crown Law review has found there's not enough evidence, and because the failures were systemic.
