Victorian Legal Aid has defended its decision to fund appeals for Jill Meagher’s killer Adrian Earnest Bayley, as well as a Vietnamese national who is awaiting deportation and has confessed to murder.
Tom Elliott says – ‘Legal Aid insults ordinary Aussies’. You can read his article in the Herald Sun HERE.
‘Too many courts, judges and funding bodies like Legal Aid prefer to free criminals than protect the innocent.’ -Tom writes.
Victorian Legal Aid read Tom’s piece and wanted to come on show to defend their cause.
Bevan Warner, Managing Director for Legal Aid Victoria spoke with Tom Elliott.
‘We don’t look for cases that would be sympathetic in the public. We looks for cases that are suited to testing the rules’ – Mr Warner told 3AW Drive.
