Dreamworld Inquest: “Justice delayed is justice denied”

Witnesses at the Coronial Inquiry might have to be recalled to the stand after a last-minute document dump from Dreamworld’s lawyers.

Representatives for Dreamworld’s parent company, Ardent Leisure, provided thousands of documents on Monday, delaying proceedings for the inquiry into the death of Roozi Araghi, Luke Dorsett, Kate Goodchild and Cindy Low on the Thunder River Rapids Ride in 2016.

Counsel assisting the Coroner Ken Fleming QC said the delays will affect the victim’s families.


“It’s very important everyone has a fair go in this,” he said.

“Any delay would cause stress to the families, we’ve only delayed a couple of hours, and that’s fortuitous at the moment.

“We don’t want to be delayed any longer than that, hopefully, we have all the documents now.

“We all know the old saying, justice delayed is justice denied.”

The court heard from more former staff members today who detailed safety recommendations for the park leading up to the tragic incident on October 25, 2016.

A key document showed staff complained about the size of CCTV screens saying they were too small and made it too difficult to evaluate the risks in the ride area.

The Inquest continues.
