Doing it 4 Allison – Justice Needs To Be Served!


UPDATE 30/12/2015

scroll down for our well known member and world class photographer GerryRocks coverage of the outpouring of support for Allison and a demand for justice. The DPP are going to appeal this joke of a downgrade -Robbo

QUEENSLAND’S Director of Public Prosecutions will appeal Gerard Baden-Clay’s manslaughter verdict.

Baden-Clay, who was last year sentenced to life in prison for murdering his wife Allison, had his murder conviction downgraded to manslaughter in a shock appeal ruling earlier this month, sparking community anger.

DPP Michael Byrne QC will make an application to the High Court seeking special leave to appeal the Court of Appeal decision.

The Courier-Mail exclusively revealed yesterday that Mr Byrne had privately told the Queensland Government he will appeal to the High Court to reinstate Baden-Clay’s murder conviction.

“I have been advised that the DPP intends to file the application when the High Court registry opens on Monday 4 January,” Queensland Attorney-General Yvette D’Ath said in a statement on Wednesday. (scroll down for her full statement)

This will give the DPP 28 days to lodge an outline of argument with the High Court.

The defence will then be given 21 days to outline its argument before the High Court schedules a date to hear the applications.

Mr Byrne had advised Allison’s family of the decision to appeal on Wednesday morning after finalising his decision on Tuesday, Ms D’Ath said.

In its shock ruling, the Court of Appeal argued the jury that convicted Baden-Clay of murder last year couldn’t have known beyond reasonable doubt that he intended to kill Allison.

The decision outraged the community, with more than 100,000 people signing an online petition requesting the Queensland Attorney-General to file an appeal.

Thousands of people have also gathered in Brisbane’s CBD over the past fortnight to protest against the manslaughter verdict

FULL STATEMENT

Queensland Attorney-General Yvette D’Ath said today: “I have been advised that the Director of Public Prosecutions has advised the Dickie family this morning that he will be making an application to the High Court seeking special leave to appeal the recent Court of Appeal decision that saw Gerard Baden-Clay’s murder conviction downgraded to manslaughter. This has been the result of the DPP finalising his decision yesterday.

Thousands have attended a rally to protest the downgrading of Gerard Baden-Clay’s murder conviction.

“I have been advised that the DPP intends to file the application when the High Court registry opens on Monday 4 January 2016. The process then provides the DPP with 28 days to lodge an outline of argument with the High Court. The defence will then have a further 21 days to do the same.

“Subject to these processes being finalised, the High Court will then schedule a date to hear the applications.

“Given this legal process is underway, I will not be making any further comment in relation to this matter.

G’day folks, it’s been awhile!  A picture paints a thousand words!

Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think we’d have a scene played out like the one on Friday. The Court Of Appeal’s decision has left most with a bad taste in their mouths, many questioning the justice system. I couldn’t let Friday pass by without attending and the capturing images. It was so wonderful to see the community of Brisbane come together and rally behind Allison’s family and friends, also giving support the victims of domestic violence.

  1. Seems there is a dangerous precedent here.Let just say I will to kill someone .I put myself into a position where we are alone.
    Then since there are NO WITNESSES I can stab, hit them with any blunt object and disposed of the evidence inc the Body.
    When exposed I simply say ” I did not intentionally ” kill them, we had a VERBAL fight and I lost my temper when the VICTIM went to attack me.Can use this case for my defence……….I DID NOT MEAN IT !!!!.Even though I perjured myself in court, Lied through my teeth. and Had ***** as a friend.
    This makes Qld the easy MURDER State!!!!!!!!!!! .I did not mean it your Honor.

  2. A high ranking police officer once told me “there is no justice in our justice system”. How can we have justice when judges and magistrates are not made accountable for their decisions. The entire system needs a major overhaul, why have police spend months and sometimes years investigating crimes, only for the judge or magistrate to give the perpetrator a minimal sentence or no jail time at all. How in the case of Bayden-Clay is it possible for anybody to come up with a verdict of manslaughter? How can anybody overlook the facts of the case and say there was not enough evidence to suggest it was premeditated or did someone else move the body? Did someone else lie to police about the events of that day, did someone else have claw marks on his face and tell the police that he cut himself shaving? It is only my opinion but I suggest he did have murderous intent that night, he also had intentions to get away with this crime, by hiding the body and constructing a web of deceit, he never once said anything to police to the contrary. This man is guilty of murder, he is also guilty of interfering with a body, in his attempt to hide what he had done. He is a manipulative person and even now he has managed to manipulate the corrupt system we have to, I won’t say convince, but he has managed to dodge a bullet and get the powers that be to convict him of a lesser sentence of manslaughter. The solicitors and panel that have enabled this man to evade proper punishment should hang your heads in shame.

  3. Baffled! What a slap in the face. I hope those trashy gossip mags dont interveiw that awful Toni Mc Hugh again she was paid a hefty sum for her interveiws and cunningly shot through benefitting from the proceeds of crime. She did very well for herself of course she took a stand in court she would be a fool not to that was a way to clear her name and consience. There is no closure for the family what an awful situation betrayed by the justice system again not suprising they are wackjobs. Apparently he set up a life insurance policy out on her they were having financial problems, he was having sex with Toni Mchugh, the marriage was in a mess, he dumps her body in a creek ,DNA proved it was Alisons blood was in the car. Shit thats frigin enough to lock the prick up for life but no not this f…cked up judicial system. Lets see if this comes about it isnt set in concrete yet I doubt it. Emotional mind torture for the family and friends. Its a cruel world we live in.

  4. Yeah I agree like thousands of others – Baden-Clay is a slimy scum. How dare he think he can take someone’s life AND the mother of his children of all things and lie, lie, lie and now he’s worked out a way to “beat the system” and he’s going for it. What a disgusting low life pig he really is. There was no need to kill anyone – he could have left with that other “thing” he was sleeping with – he must have made Allison’s life so miserable for a long long time. What a slime ball he really is – I hope he’s getting what he deserves from his “inmates” as I know a lot don’t like crimes against women or children. But of course he will be one of the “protected” species so he doesn’t get his head smashed in. It’s a bloody cruel world when Judges send people to jail for petty things (well compared to murder) like driving offences, not paying fines, petty theft – and a piece of s#*% like that gets two bites at the cherry so he can walk free sooner. HOW CAN THE EVIDENCE CHANGE NOW!!!! It’s clear Baden-Clay killed his wife and had the audacity to move her dead body and throw it in such a dirty disgusting mud hole. I don’t give a rats if he meant it or not – he disposed of her body after killing her – how can you not mean that!!! I smashed into another car and I didn’t mean it either – but I still had to pay for the damage. Anyone who can do what that mongrel did and not flinch when talking about her in front of the cameras needs to be locked up for life!!!! To Allison’s family – I know it’s important for kids to have a father but he’s no father he lost that right – he’s a monster and make no mistake he IS a sleazy monster who only thinks of himself. Lock him up for life and while he’s in there give him the hell he put Allison through.

  5. All these good people turning out for Alison, including murdered Daniel Morcombe’s parents for real justice to be served against killers and violent criminals is proof that for the most part, most, and that is I say most ‘Australian’s’ in every state, have had a gutful of the weak Justice system and soft sentences handed down by judges with the persuasion of good criminal defence lawyers.

    The big problem is however, we all know what’s wrong with the legal justice system, it does not listen to the people and victims of crime, and continues in its high and mighty superior position of continuing, despite public anguish, to be way too soft, letting all us good people that protest continually towards them, down time after time, but how can we sack??? ‘them in power in the halls of justice, meaning all those silks, that favour criminal human rights and sway towards the sentence discounting of leniency for horrible crimes, and rarely hand out life means life prison sentences.
    All them big wigs the do-gooders of justice , the ‘lawyers the judges the magistrates’, unless they have been living in a cave’ would have to know the ordinary people are angry at there lenient sentences handed down in courts, but they continue to not perform for the tough justice of all the community and victims, only feel sorry for the rehabilitation and reform of sly, evil, cunning criminals.
    And often in summing up on a criminals sentence about to be handed out by the magistrate or judge, they say in their own words how bad the crime committed was, as well as having read a harrowing victims impact statement, but they then hand down a sentence far short of the maximum sentence in the sentencing acts, that they very easy could hand down to the found guilty accused murderer or violent crimes committed.

    The Departments of Justice, the Parole Boards and even the judges and Magistrates that don’t want to, including the Governments in power, many who have been lawyers, just won’t be tough and harsh on sentencing despicable smart arse criminals? And Gerald Baden Clay is a fine example of the failings of the utter contempt towards the victims of his crime, by down playing murder to the lesser prison sentence of manslaughter as if it was just some kind of misdemeanour or challenging a parking ticket.

    Even politicians cannot or don’t want too become involved in the Criminal Justice System, so far as sentencing is concerned.

    For all the flaws that the United States of America dies have, one thing is for sure for the most part, they have a Criminal Justice System that comes down very strong on violent crimes up to murder. Sentences over 100 years and capital punishment are very frequently hand out to felons.
    Even life in prison without parole, plus1000 years to a criminal called Ariel Castro in 2013.

    So this is just so out of touch Australian selected Judges are in comparison to Anzus treaty with the United States of America since 1951.
    Well Australia’s criminal justice system sentencing of horrible crimes is so far behind the community expectations its is a very serious concern. Terrorism sentencing is taken more serious, as it should be, but harsh sentencing also needs to be handed down for crimes of violence, whether they be committed on woman, men , animals and children. But they are not.
    the average sentence is far short always of the crimes act and sentencing acts maximum penalty.
    Rape for example carries a maximum 25 year sentence, which a judge in Australia if he or she so desires can hand down. When was 25 years in Australia last handed down for rape? – So this is my point. We need to sack our non-performing judges and magistrates that fail to hand down at the very least the maximum prison sentence at their disposal!
    The problem is yet again we the people cannot sack our public servant judiciary of crim loving soft jJustices? We can sack a political Prime Minister but not our Justices of the criminal law.
