Gaol House fued at Goulburn

The Coordinator of the Justice Action Group has spoken out against charges laid against 11 inmates at Goulburn Gaol.

It comes after last month's riot in the maximum security section that was caused because a barbeque was cancelled.

Brett Collins believes the cancellation was a little over the top.

However the Prison Officer's Vocational Branch has hit back, saying that allowing the barbeque to go ahead, would've rewarded bad behaviour.

Chairman Steve McMahon insists that staff are not there to be verbally or physically abused by inmates.
