On Thursday, Gail Hickey, mother of T.J. Hickey, and her family and supporters, presented a petition with over 12,000 signatures to Greens MP, David Shoebridge, triggering a formal mention in the NSW Parliament. The petition seeks to reinstate the inquiry into T.J.’s death.
In 2004, T.J. Hickey, then 17, was killed during a police pursuit in Redfern. His family has always maintained a police cover up in the matter.
The signatures were collected over the past months and was supported by the Indigenous Social Justice Association (ISJA), Sydney.
