The families of 15 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who have died in custody have used the 30th anniversary of the royal commission to call for government to fully implement and fund all of its 339 recommendations, and to ensure that all deaths in custody are investigated by a body independent of police or corrective services.

An investigation by Guardian Australia has revealed that at least 474 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have died since the royal commission handed down its final report on 15 April, 1991.
