  1. Thank you for this article and the related postcast. It’s an obvious statement, but you are doing really important work. Thank you and hope to be a subscriber soon. Just incredible the High Court didn’t even watch the tapes of the evidence.

    One thing perhaps to draw people’s attention to: I was on the Crikey news website and read a statement from the father of the other choirboy who killed himself. He said the day of his (the father’s) statement was the anniversary of his son’s death. The article was dated the 8th of April. So the High Court delivered its judgment on the day, or the day before, the anniversary of the victim’s suicide and released Pell in time for Easter. How horrific.

    If someone knows that father, or knows a journalist who knows that father, please tell him their are members of the public who are aching for him and the other surviving choirboy and family, and that we are appalled by the state of the judiciary. The public will never forget what Pell’s done and who his supporters are. Pell will never be what he was.

  2. P.S. Here is the link to the Crikey article. People may dismiss the timing of the decision as an unfortunate coincidence, and I’d perhaps be inclined to agree if it wasn’t for the fact that I know of similar timing in another sexual assault case where the judge’s decision was handed down at a significant time for the victim. If it’s a mistake then it’s very unfortunate and shows the judicial system just a machine with no thought for the victims or their families.

  3. Pell was found not guilty by the high court, end of story. This was a witch hunt from day one, shame on the media and the ABC for condeming an innocent man, one of the victims told his mother before he died that it never happened, that should have raised alarm bells in the first place, remember pedophiles come from all walks of life, even married men.

  4. Listen Gary Johnston, half guilty and half innocent does not exist,the High court found Pell not guilty so he is innocent. Everyone including Pell is entitled to the presumption of innocence until proven guilty, as he was not found guilty then he is presumed innocent, had he been found guilty he would be in Gaol.This was a massive witch hunt against Pell by the Victoria police, the media and the ABC,This reminds me of the same style witch hunt against Lindy Chamberlain, I remember she got paid a lot of money, what you should be pushing for is to hold accountable all the people involved in this witch hunt, I hope Pell sues for millions.
