I think by now most of us know about the suppressed evidence in the Louise Nicholas rape trial. Yesterday a group of Wellington women distributed 1200 leaflets exposing the suppressed information. One of the them was Grace Millar, from the UNITE union.
I don’t often agree with socialists like Grace Millar, however I admire her and her friend’s bravery in openly flouting a court suppression order.
This case perfectly illustrates the need to allow “patterns based evidence” to be admitted in court.
Had the jury known the factors that have been exposed by the Wellington women and several Blogs, I think the outcome of the trial could have been much different.
Hats off to Louise Nicholas, a very brave woman indeed. Truth will out!
