Many boys were beaten by prison officers at Eastwood Park Detention Centre during the 1970s and 80s.
The team at Switalskis have expertise in pursuing cases against detention centres for assaults against detainees committed in the 1970s and 1980s. We have heard many harrowing accounts of prison officers beating boys.
We have helped over 400 men get compensation for the assaults they were subjected to at many other detention centres and we are now focusing our aim at getting compensation for the men assaulted at the Eastwood Park detention centre .
We believe the Government should set up an Inquiry into how this horrendous treatment became routine across detention centres.
