The ABC's report is sketchy but it seems the Tasmanian government wants external contractors with prisoner contact to pass relevant information to authorities. Naturally, this has caused outrage:
Aboriginal groups have condemned Tasmanian Government attempts to have welfare workers and volunteers act as spies in the state's prisons.

Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre spokeswoman Trudy Maluga is outraged.

"Risdon prison seem to be mirroring [US detention facility] Guantanamo Bay," she said.
Is Trudy Maluga an idiot or what?
