Four Aboriginal men with intellectual and cognitive disabilities were held for years in a maximum security prison in the Northern Territory despite being found unfit to stand trial or not guilty by reason of insanity. 

If two of these men had been found guilty they would have received a sentence of 12 months. Instead, they were imprisoned for four and a half years and six years respectively.

The Australian Human Rights Commission conducted an inquiry into whether this involved any breach of human rights by Commonwealth.
