It’s been two-and-a-half long years for the Dungay family, who are still searching for answers surrounding the death of David Dungay Jnr, who died while in custody at Long Bay Jail.
The Kempsey man was 26-years-old when, on December 29, 2015, a team of guards removed him from his cell in the mental health ward of the prison.
In the ensuing extraction, David Dungay Jnr, who was being treated for schizophrenia, complained he couldn't breath.
He was relocated to another cell equipped with CCTV and injected with a sedative.
He died shortly after.
In an attempt to have their voices heard, the Dungay family will march from the Kempsey Library to the Riverside Park as part of a peaceful protest on Saturday June 9 at 11am.
“The family want the truth to be told, we need our community support to make a stand,” David’s cousin Hector Dungay told the Argus.
“We are marching to say no more deaths in custody.”
An inquest into the death of David Dungay Jnr is scheduled for July.
