A young festivalgoer has revealed her humiliation in the hands of security personnel, while she was searched twice.
The pattern, which cannot be identified, provided evidence during the investigation into the deaths of six young people at music festivals in New South Wales between December 2017 and January 2019 on Thursday.
She said she seldom drank and never used drugs, so she was surprised when a sniffer chose her when she entered the Knockout Circuz in 2017.
The woman tore when she told the inquest that she had been sent to a room where a police officer was waiting.
Despite the fact that she said she didn't have any drugs, the woman said the officer said: & # 39; The dogs are never wrong, so just tell me where the drugs are & # 39; (stock)
& # 39; I had to take off my top and my bra, & # 39; said the woman Thursday in the theater (stock)
Despite the fact that she said she didn't have any drugs, the woman said the officer said: & # 39; The dogs are never wrong, so just tell me where the medication is. & # 39;
After the officer again asked what she was hiding and why she was nervous, the woman said she had never been in a situation where she was looking for a comic.
& # 39; I had to take off my top and my bra, & # 39; told the woman Thursday in the survey.
& # 39; I covered my breasts and she told me to raise my hands and she told me to tell her where the drugs were.
& # 39; I told her I had none.
& # 39; She said: & # 39; If you don't tell me where the drugs are, I'm going to make this fun and slow & # 39;. & # 39;
The cartridge was told to remove all her shorts and underwear, squat and cough repeatedly.
A search in the woman's bag revealed her boyfriend's wallet, which the policeman pulled out of the room and handed over to another person.
The festival patron said she was comic-searched at another festival where, again, no drugs were found (stock)
& # 39; She opened the door while I was still naked and gave the wallet to someone else and left me there for a while. & # 39;
The festival visitor said she was looking for another festival where, again, no drugs were found.
& # 39; You have been humiliated. The way I was spoken (when I was searched) was as if I had done something wrong, & she said.
She said she loved the production and music of loud music events, but no longer at Australian music festivals, because the amount of police and security made her anxious and & # 39; sometimes a criminal & # 39; made it feel.
According to documents from the NSW parliament, drugs were only found in 36 percent of the 1,124 cartoon studies that were spurred on by sniffing horses in 2017.
The research comes after six young people died after taking drugs at NSW music festivals.
