    Daniel's parents are incredible people and have shown tremendous strength despite the daily agony of missing Daniel. I just wish they could be left alone and not have to think about this monster and his disgusting appeals ever again.

    Morcombe killer's appeal to be heard today
    4:26 am, Wednesday, 26 November 2014

    Lawyers for Brett Peter Cowan will argue he did not get a fair trial when he was convicted of the murder of schoolboy Daniel Morcombe.

    The Court of Appeal in Brisbane will hear Cowan's case on Wednesday after he was sentenced in March to life with a non-parole period of 20 years.

    A jury then found Cowan, 45, guilty of abducting and murdering the Sunshine Coast schoolboy.

    Lawyers filed a notice of appeal against his murder conviction in April.

    Thanks for all your updates everyone and for not forgetting about Daniel's case. I just want Daniel's family to be left in peace safe in the knowledge that this monster is never going to walk free again. I pray to God this appeal fails and he is incarcerated for life.

    Daniel Morcombe murder: Brett Cowan appeal a 'waste of taxpayers' money'
    By Francene Norton, Leonie Mellor and Elaine Ford

    Bruce and Denise Morcombe have described the appeal of the man convicted of killing their 13-year-old son on Queensland's Sunshine Coast as "a waste of taxpayers' money".

    Speaking outside court this morning, Mr Morcombe said the appeal was: "It's a test to see whether Cowan's guilty legal verdict was fair, in particular ... the covert operation," he said.
    Tell me about fair - ask Daniel if it was fair."

    A-G appealing Cowan's sentence as inadequate
    The Attorney-General is also appealing against Cowan's sentence, arguing the non-parole period of 20 years is manifestly inadequate, not in line with community expectations and will not act as a deterrent ...

    Basic argument at the moment is Cowan never intended to confess to police. Undercover operation took away his right to silence. #morcombe

    Justice McMurdo asks Davis if suggesting covert op illegal. He says no. McMurdo: "unfair and improper but not illegal." #morcombe @abcnews

    He opened his mouth. Not under duress.

    Can someone point out the basic problem with Cowan’s defence that he had his right to silence taken away?

    Kate Kyriacou ‏@KateKyriacou 5m5 minutes ago
    Davis argues that Cowan exercised his right not to speak to people of authority about the topic. #morcombe

    Kate Kyriacou ‏@KateKyriacou 6m6 minutes ago
    Justices seeming to disagree that Cowan ever exercised his right to silence. He spoke to police often. #morcombe

    And sorry Cowan but in Australia, Entrapment is just a movie Catherine Zeta Jones starred in. It’s not a law here.

    Davis is discussing the Canadian decision on Queen v Hart, another Mr Big case, but says laws are different there. #morcombe

    Kate Kyriacou ‏@KateKyriacou 13m13 minutes ago
    Davis says concerns were raised in Canada about the reliability of Mr Big confessions. #morcombe

    Kate Kyriacou ‏@KateKyriacou 1m1 minute ago
    Davis tells the court the Mr Big sting wasn't originally the plan. Police began the undercover op with a more simple plan in mind. #morcombe

    Davis says everybody knew Cowan wasn't going to confess at the inquest. That's why police had an undercover operation planned. #morcombe

    Davis is criticising the cross examination Cowan underwent during the inquest. Describes some of it as "just abuse". #morcombe

    SERIOUSLY? Fair? Was Daniel treated fairly.
    What a waste of time and money.

    Does capital punishment still happen in the world-just wondering?

    Lawyers for Brett Peter Cowan tell Court of Appeal he was ‘threatened’ into confessing
    BROOKE BASKIN THE COURIER-MAIL NOVEMBER 27, 2014 12:00AM

    Top silk Peter Davis, QC, told the Court of Appeal the 45-year-old’s conviction for the murder of the Sunshine Coast boy should be overturned. He said Cowan’s confession to undercover police posing as members of a crime gang should have been ruled as inadmissable evidence at the trial because it was “unfair”...
