The complaints in this case arose from an incident in which the applicant was arrested for failing to stop his bicycle when required by police officers.

Two complaints were reviewed, namely:

1. that the applicant was kept in custody until the next morning when he did not pose an obvious threat and was seriously injured; and

2. that the applicant's partner was not informed of his circumstances despite him having asked for this contact to be made.

The review found that one complaint was dealt with to a reasonable standard while the other was not. One recommendation was made in this connection.
