Ep 60: The Insult of Having to Beg Betty for Pardon

Aboriginal man Kipper Billy was wrongly convicted of rape in 1861, in the state of Qld he was executed for a crime he did not commit. Now 150 years later he’s finally been given the pardon he deserves, although true justice can never be done. This week we explore the issue of pardon in this context and the insult it is that Aboriginal people still have to beg the very family who invaded their lands for the right to be free.

Ep 59: Bowraville: Still Fighting for Justice

This week we examine the NSW Court of Criminal Appeal refusing an application by the NSW Attorney-General to retry the person police suspect of killing three Aboriginal children in Bowraville between 1990 and 1991. Despite the incredible efforts of the children’s families, they’ve been failed again. Their demands for justice and the failure for it to be delivered rests on the shoulders of the entire Australian community, as well as the police and politicians. So what has to be done to value Aboriginal lives.

Ep 58: No Appeal if you’re Aboriginal

This week we take a look at what is happening in Australia in regards to prisoners appealing significant sentences for murder were there is doubt over their guilt. For two Non-Aboriginal prisoners it appears justice will be served, one has already received compensation. For two Aboriginal men, the opposite is true!

Ep 55: Another Aboriginal Man Innocent Inside

When Curtain the Podcast began we asked the question ‘How many Indigenous prisoners in Australia are innocent?”. Today we discuss the case of South Australia’s Derek Bromley, who has been in prison for more than 34 years. He’s always maintained his innocence, the two key witnesses have long since been shown to have no credibility and others have walked free… why not Derek?

Ep 53: Who is Committing the Crimes?

This week on Curtain the podcast, in just the past week three more examples have emerged of police targeting Aboriginal people. Firstly in the attempt to imprison the cousin of Ms Dhu, again for unpaid fines, despite all that has happened to the family and the situation you’ll hear. A WA Snr Sergeant has struck with a vehicle a young 18 year old leaving him in hospital and the community of Palm Island has been awarded 30 million dollars, after the QPS was found to have breached the Racial Discrimination Act.
