Calling for the urgent establishment of a Criminal Cases Review Commission in Tasmania, former Tasmanian Premier and shadow Attorney General Lara Giddings officially launched my book on Thursday, September 6, 2018, to a full house at Fullers Bookshop in Hobart; Sarah Bowles (daughter of Sue Neill-Fraser whose case makes up the bulk of the book) spoke of the ongoing trauma endured by the entire family since her mother’s arrest in August 2009.
Giddings also referred to the new legislation that has allowed Neill-Fraser to seek leave to appeal against her conviction, which is entering its final stages in the Supreme Court. Giddings said the new legislation set the bar too high for it to be truly effective in addressing miscarriages of justice.
Giddings, Bowles and myself were interviewed for WIN TV’s 6 o’clock news on the day.
Murder by the Prosecution is available at all good bookstores and online from the publisher, Wilkinson Publishing.
