According to the Alexander Maconochie Centre's guidelines, the officer in charge of the prison is responsible for notifying a detainee's next of kin "as soon as practicable."

A spokeswoman for the Justice Department said the "informal" identification was an "unforeseeable and highly regrettable circumstance".

"The policy and procedure was followed in this case," she said.

"Family members were coincidentally present at the Canberra Hospital and were therefore informally made aware of the admission of the detainee prior to the official notification taking place.

The spokeswoman said the priority of officers had been to get Mr Laipato medical treatment as quickly as possible.

"ACTCS's main priority was to ensure the secure transfer of the detainee to hospital for assessment and treatment of his injuries," she said.

A number of detainees were involved in the incident, but the reason for the brawl is unknown.

This is the second time Mr Laipato has been assaulted in prison, where he is serving a sentence for assaulting his ex-partner.
