I understand the frustration people feel in relation to this case. It is a very complex matter. The full details simply cannot be captured by a motion like this. It is a matter for Western Australia and the Northern Territory to try to find a resolution.
In saying that, I have recently written to the attorneys general of Western Australia and the Northern Territory, as well as the Minister for Health, on
this matter. My office has spoken to Ms Fulton’s community guardian, Mr McKinlay. I would be happy to keep Senator Siewert abreast of updates in relation to Rosie Fulton’s circumstances.
