Summary "ATSIC commissioned Chris Cuneen of the Institute of Criminology at Sydney University Law School to study the implications of ZTP would have for Indigenous people. His report, published in February 1999, concluded that ZTP would lead to a further rapid increase in the jailing of Aboriginal people for trivial offences and would be in breach of 19 recommendations of the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody
