Geektastic: I saw something in Stuff which said that if they report it, they are obliged to report it accurately and verbatim


Hahahahahaha 🤣 that’s hilarious “report accurately”, not sure that rings true for any news media outlet these days?!

I believe it is an offence to publicly discuss ongoing criminal trials. 

 

 

 

Up to you people though. Do you feel lucky? 

 

 

 

[edit] just checked, some discussion is allowed by the courts, freedom of expression etc.... several of the above comments do refer more specifically to the case, probably ok, but INAL. 

 

I do have strong opinions about this particular trial , safer to wait until after to discuss. 

 

 

 

 

Notwithstanding the discussion between yourself and scuwp about what is and isn't allowed, I have just re-read the entire thread and to me there isn't a single post that discusses the actual trial.  This thread is about media coverage of the trial and most posts have stayed very much on-topic (remarkably so actually), the one or two that strayed somewhat also don't discuss the trial itself.

 

I guess I'm failing to see the point of or the motivation behind your post.

 

IANAL either.

IANAL. Bit hard to expect total radio silence from the nation at large in the age of internet when you have a high profile case that was initially a very public missing persons inquiry. I have further musings but they are not appropriate to discuss until a verdict has been reached.

I respectively disagree but go ahead if you like.

They didn't take long. But I probably wouldn't have, either.

It seemed a pretty open and shut case to me.

 

He actually took photos of her dead body. Sometimes I really despise the human race.

The way he behaved after her death was despicable and the guilty verdict was a formality.   The defences case was unconvincing -- i feel for Graces family - having a daughter myself i can imagine the nightmare they have endured.

I have a question (which may sound dumb but I've never been involved in a court case) but now the a-hole has been found guilty, why does his name suppression continue? I thought the minute you were found guilty it was lifted? Or does that happen at his sentencing next year - or never?

Because our suppression laws are pathetic. I agree with suppression up until the guilty verdict....but after then it is irrelevant.

There is a case where family innocents can be affected, but I can't see how that applies here at all.

This one is unusual because even the general reasons for the suppression are subject to the suppression order.

I'm guessing that technically the trial is not complete until sentencing.

Our suppression orders seem to very unusual We have the case of the Doctor on another murder charged being named yet the person involved in this case being given suppression. The poor girl in this case has had many details of her life laid for all to see and she was the victim. Very strange situation I now read that the scumbag has been named in overseas media. Perhaps we need to look at the law around suppression??
