Vulnerable Indigenous man locked up by police in 'string of errors' during coronavirus pandemic

The vice president of Liberty Victoria, Julia Kretzenbacher, said Mr Kennedy's case highlighted the potential for problems with the justice system during the COVID-19 outbreak.

"[Mr Kennedy's] case concerned me because our systems should be careful and look after people like him who are vulnerable, especially in the current circumstances," Ms Kretzenbacher said.

"It's concerning that at present Victoria Police isn't releasing any data about where most of the fines are issued and the backgrounds of the people who are having the fines issued."
