Date set for Hickey inquest

Extract from Australian Broadcasting Corporation - ABC Online, on 25 March 2004


A date has been set for the coronial inquest into the death of the Aboriginal teenager Thomas Hickey.

The death sparked a nine-hour riot at Redfern in Sydney's inner-west last month.

New South Wales State coroner John Abernethy has set aside two weeks to hear evidence from July 5.

Meanwhile, a police spokesman says Strike Force Coburn, which is investigating the police response to the riot, is expected to finalise its report within the next few weeks.
