Murder by the Prosecution / Andrew L Urban

Products Qty: 4

A disturbing expose of wrongful murder convictions: Sue Neill-Fraser, Henry Keogh, David Szach and Gordon Wood.

Exposing some grave mistakes in Australia’s not-so-trustworthy criminal justice system, film critic turned activist journalist Andrew L. Urban recounts how his life is changed when he is drawn into the field of wrongful convictions after reviewing a documentary about the case of Hobart grandmother, Sue Neill-Fraser, convicted of murder — without evidence. As he probes further, he comes across other cases and finds police investigations marred by tunnel vision; lawyers flouting the rule of law chasing convictions; courts admitting inadmissible (and false) forensic evidence; the Crown withholding exculpatory evidence; and worst of all, prosecutors making up murder scenarios.

Driven by disturbing discoveries over five years of research and writing, covering five extraordinary cases: Sue Neill-Fraser, Gordon Wood, Henry Keogh, David Szach, and Gary Nye — Andrew interviews specialist legal academic Dr Bob Moles and others as he charts the damning list of errors.

Bringing together his writings and interviews on the subject as well as his correspondence with legal academics and politicians, including Attorneys General, Andrew lists action points that if implemented could help reduce the incidence of wrongful convictions.
