Former Premier & A-G calls for Sue Neill-Fraser case review

Former Tasmanian Premier and A-G, Lara Giddings, puts the case for a full review of the  Sue Neill-Fraser murder case, in a double page spread in the Hobart Mercury (Sept. 15, 2021), referring the public to the mass of damning new exculpatory evidence revealed in the Etter/Selby papers tabled in Parliament two weeks ago. 

By giving Giddings’ text such prominence and presentation, the Mercury has made it clear that it editorially supports her call for an independent review of the case – irrespective of the outcome of the appeal (which isn’t even mentioned).

“As one of those “crackpots”, let me assure you that this is not about needing my name to be known! This is about a woman who has spent 12 years in prison for a crime I believe, based on the material before me, she did not commit.”

    For those who subscribe to The Mercury online, comments are open if you feel so inclined to post.
    I attempted to post the direct link to the ETTER/SELBY papers; it didn’t pass the test, for whatever reason?

      Ahhahah, thank you andrea for sharing these (mostly) hilariously uninformed, misinformed, vainly malignant, marginally unhinged but lol comments; are you sure you didn’t make them up as part of some dark, sarcastic comedy routine to ridicule some of the public opinion doing the rounds? I think my favourite is “don’t get me started on her fake wheel chair they roll out every time she’s in public.” That’s black comedy Gold!

        My adjectives are not as polite as yours Andrew.

        I won’t waste my keyboard fingers writing them, as under cover of decency you could not publish. I’ve already been on thin ice in recent times.

        Thank you for posting the link.

        I thought it was illustrative of other discussions going on. But I was dismayed that you thought I was making it up. I wasn’t. I can’t see any way to fake an independently verifiable thread unless rather a lot or work to set up all those accounts and avatars and so on is done.

        Another one I have been reading is https://twitter.com/DrCarlAUS which your readers may also be interested in exploring.

        If it is within the acceptable terms of your forum I might also contribute my own thoughts at some stage but first will be reading the “Etter/Selby” papers, the trial transcript, the Court of Appeal findings, the coroner’s report and the High Court judgement on the seeking of leave to appeal.

    I just went to the Mercury’s online site to read Lara’s article. Oddly enough, it wasn’t there.
