Pora type appeals to High Court of Australia

  • March 4th, 2015

Another embarrassment for our criminal justice system dealt with by  the Privy Council, the world’s best independent  top court.

There will be too much political resistance to admitting a stupid mistake in dumping that inexpensive heritage assurance of judicial objectivity. But the need remains.

We should promptly ask the High Court of Australia to accept our appeals where we need demonstrable assurance that the result will not be influenced by insider defensiveness or local groupthink.

Nothing could have stopped Helen Clark from abolishing appeals to the Privy Council and creating jobs for the girls and you are quite right-the left would still fight tooth and nail against having it reinstated. It was one of a number of things that were done without much view to the consequences but with everything to do with political ideology.
