    Just checked your last post and you are replying within the quoted post, instead of outside the html tags. Make sure when you start typing your response that you start it AFTER the last html tag that says [ /QUOTE ] and make sure you don't touch those lovely square brackets that contain the html tags.

    That should solve your problem. If not, private message me and we'll take it from there.

    Possibly. In criminal trials a side can’t keep following all leads. If a witness isn’t credible, the Judge can be asked to make an adverse credit finding about a witness and draw an inference from that. That could be that the witness is lying because they are guilty or to protect a friend etc. if there is a medical reason, then that witness probably shouldn’t be called. If parties were allowed to follow up on every inconsistency, a trial would never end. It’s called “collateral evidence on credit” if anyone wants to look into it a bit more.

    But in an Inquest, the Coroner could investigate a bit more. Normal rules of evidence don’t apply at Inquests.

    And if the judge does make an adverse credit finding, what are the consequences of that? What happens, practically, at the trial?

    Yes, I am interested in this, as well. IIRC after the inquest into Matthew Leveson's death, the Coroner found that Atkins lied something like 72 times and he faced charges of perjury ... until he decided to give up the location of Matthew's remains.


    "I regret that my findings cannot meet the family's hopes and expectations," deputy state coroner Elaine Truscott.
    "I do not accept Mr Atkins is a person of truth."
    The findings included 72 references to lies.
    However, the coroner said there was insufficient evidence to "positively determine — to the requisite standard — how or why Matt died".
    Lies told by boyfriend but no cause of death found in Leveson inquest, coroner finds

    There is a document here that speaks to representing inquest lawyers a little of credit and of collateral matters at an inquest.
    Items 27 - 29.

    Basically says that

    "Matters going to credit alone may or may not be admissible upon, in the author’s experience, similar bases to those applying in an adversarial proceeding in a court. Of course, the ethical rules binding advocates will apply so one must be careful about putting matters without any factual foundation."

    "His Honour said that “personal reputation has now been established as an interest which should not be damaged by an official finding after a statutory inquiry unless the person whose reputation is likely to be affected has had a full and fair opportunity to show why the finding should not be made”

    "...... not every criticism or adverse comment on collateral matters which might require the rules of procedural fairness to be applied. One must look at whether there is a real potential to prejudice the plaintiff’s reputation and/business interests and whether it would be done in such a way that would become a matter of public interest and concern".

    I’m curious to know if there is anything else in his history too.

    According to information in this article the average stalker’s age is mid thirties. Based on that it would seem that a man engaging in stalking behaviour at Savages's age is more on the unusual side.
    Truth behind Aussie stalkers

    PS behaviour allegedly included unwanted romantic advances that became quite obsessive, approaching the postal worker on the street, knowing personal details about her that she had never revealed to him. It became so bad the postal worker was granted an AVO against him and yet when PS is asked about it he says it was all a misunderstanding and he denied stalking her.

    I wonder what his wife thought about the alleged stalking and whether PS was able to pass it off as a misunderstanding to her.

    Yes, I did too. And I am happy that someone else did. :)
    (Though not so happy about the subject matter.)

    Makes me wonder if the trafficking in persons experience that Laura has is relevant to this case. In conjunction with the Crime Stoppers alerts that went out for William in 26 countries.

    I have been wondering if the description of the pale blonde woman in the Land Cruiser matches a known-to-sex-crimes-squad child snatcher who then sells/gives children to others. :(

    Or if some other person related to this case has been known to do that in the past.
    I remember that among Spedding's historical accusations were accusations of passing the children around to other men.

    I was thinking along the same lines with regard to Laura's background...

    I don't even want to think about the other things though :(:(:(

    I still hope that if a blonde woman did take William that she did so for reasons not related to sex crimes.

    I know. We all hope that, that's for sure. It just is not looking that way, I'm afraid. :( Not judging by the types of people who have been looked at in this case, and the fact that Laura was also seconded from the sex crimes squad.

    I can only imagine that it would've been a humiliating experience for Heather. I've also wondered if the allegations damaged their relationship.

    Anyone else wonder if FGM had any involvement in this matter? As in, intervening on the postal worker's behalf or witnessing the stalking and verifying that for the police, or even telling Heather that she had seen it happening herself?

    As per here, not considered to be a wander: 'Evidence will show William Tyrrell 'was likely taken', inquest told

    However, IMO, in such circumstances you'd still be looking everywhere possible.

    I wonder if she was seconded due to this experience & that's what was being considered occurred at that stage ( Interpol alerts etc)

    Yes. Many victims are found close by to where they were last seen. They don't have to have wandered to where they are found by themselves.

    FM said William did not wander, FD said William did not wander, their early public advocate said William did not wander.

    The judge would disregard the evidence of that witness.

    Just catching up, sorry if now redundant, but these are LH's tweets in regard to KC (read in reverse order, bottom to top):

    The coroner told the court she understood it “will be frustrating for some” but there are “reasons for it”. It will resume in Taree on March 9, 2020. @10NewsFirst @10Daily

    Counsel assisting Gerard Craddock SC just told the court the inquest will be suspended now and resume in March 2020... taking a six month break between hearings. @10NewsFirst

    She told the court Jones left the house in the morning and returned that afternoon “drunker than usual”. She said they later found out he was charged with child sex offences. @10NewsFirst @10Daily

    I just don’t think so. Law is so difficult to explain, let alone in a few short sentences, so I can’t explain what would be subject to a suppression order. But the health of a POI wouldn’t be.
