    "Tennant's file challenges Mallard's confession 2006." Andrew Mallard's parents visited me and activated me a few days after their son was convicted of wilful murder of Pamela Lawrence, in Mosman Park in 1995. In turn I sought assistance from school teacher Phillip Burrows who conducted a linguistic analysis of Mr Mallard's "confession", and he found it was not a confession containing inside knowledge of the crime.

    Our concerns alarmed Malcolm McCusker QC who stated that the case could not be reopened without fresh evidence. In turn Mr McCusker contacted journalist Colleen Egan in 1998. Then lawyer and MP John Quigley was invited on board, where his contribution unearthed vital information that helped acquit Mr Mallard. After 2 unsuccessful appeals to the WA Supreme Court of Criminal Appeal it was left to the High Court of Australia who unanimously quashed Mr Mallard's conviction; in doing so, the High Court levelled criticism at all levels of the prosecution, from the police conduct through to the DPP's actions and finally the judgment handed down by the Court of Criminal Appeal. Shortly after the High Court judgment was handed down, the DPP decided not to proceed with a retrial. Furthermore, when police finally reviewed the DNA evidence found at the crime scene, the evidence identified Simon Rochford who had spent time in custody in the UK and who is currently in prison in Western Australia. When Rochford became aware that he was a person of interest to the police investigation he took his own life in prison.

    In summing up, Andrew Mallard has his family to thank for activating the whole of the defence team.

    On a sad note I now offer my sincere condolences to the Mallard family on the unfortunate passing of Andrew in the United States.
