Ombudsman tables report on our monitoring of the police investigation into the death of Roberto Laudisio-Curti
28 Feb 2013
The Ombudsman has today tabled a special report in Parliament on his office’s monitoring of the police investigation into the death of Roberto Laudisio-Curti.
Mr Laudisio-Curti, a 21-year-old Brazilian man living in Sydney, died last year after being pursued and restrained by up to eleven NSW police officers. The report details how police investigated Mr Laudisio-Curti’s death in the lead up to the coronial inquest and outlines a number of inadequacies or failings with the police investigation into the conduct of the involved police officers and other systemic issues.
The Ombudsman’s recommendations are aimed at strengthening police guidelines to ensure all relevant evidence is gathered during future critical incident investigations and to make it clear that any identified misconduct or systemic issues can and should be addressed at the earliest opportunity.
