Justice for Jorge

Launch a Coronial Inquiry into the death of Jorge Castillo-Riffo

Launch an Inquiry into the continued failure of the prosecutions launched by Safe Work SA

Why is this important?

As my partner Jorge left for work on the 27th of November 2014 he told me - as he always did - that he loved me. Rather than respond as I always had, I told him to "be careful on the scissor lift"
That was the last time I saw him alive.
Jorge was always studious in his approach to safety. He took his responsibility to his workmates very seriously, and wasn’t afraid to voice his concerns. In spite of this, he went to work one day and never came home.
The prosecution from SafeWork was dropped just days before it was set to go to court.
We deserve answers. We deserve to know what happened to him and why.
Jorge has no voice in this, but his story deserves to be heard. We need a Coronial Inquiry.

Reasons for signing

  • I just spoke with Pam on the phone telling her about the great work we do at the Australian Conservation Foundation. We shared stories and I had to hold back tears, nobody should have to suffer through something like this and what amazing strength Pam has shown trying to fight this atrocity. She deserves our support so this doesn't happen to someone else and Jorge receives justice.
  • I to have lost a husband that went to work and never came home
  • In solidarity for workplace safety, and justice.
