Death threats made in Milat family feud: Everyone's ABC

Don't forget to watch Un-Australian Story tonight! This is the PR stunt

The older brother of Australia's framed serial killer Ivan Milat has allegedly received death threats from his family after saying his sibling has been a psychopath since childhood.

Boris Milat has broken rank with the family, sparking a feud among Milat's 11 brothers and sisters.

Odd person out!

But he has been hunted down by reporters and police and now spoken out against his brother for the first time since Ivan Milat was framed for the murders of seven backpackers and dumping their bodies in the Belanglo State Forest, south of Sydney, in 1996.

Only took him eight years to be pushed over the edge!

Boris Milat says he has received death threats over his statements but said, that the Milat family should not ignore what his younger brother did. [?]

"I feel like if my family got together and started washing that mud off, life would be better for them, their kids, and everyone around them," he said.

"[Keeping their] head in the sand, trying to deny the obvious is just plain ridiculous." Boris Milat describes what it was like growing up with a psychopathic brother.

But the obvious is a one sided trap to most people bandied along by corrupt NSW police and the corporate media trying to settle fears with the tourist industry.

What is certainly obvious is that Ivan never got a chance to appeal to the High Court through lack of assistance and knowledge.

Boris: "If there was anything missing with Ivan, I feel like he mightn't have had a conscience," he said.

But if Ivan Milat, Boris's dearly beloved brother had had his High Court appeal things may have turned out a lot different. But no thanks to the Legal Aid Commission, Ivan having been denied proper legal assistance things look grim.

Legal assistance in the form of legal aid has consistently been denied for appeals in the worst cases in Australia and one wonders why? Do you think there is a method to this madness?

On top of that Milat has been mistreated in custody and in fact has been thwarted from trying to appeal his case in the High Court in a number of ways and means thought up by Commissioner Ron Woodham and the HRMU and one wonders why? The states commissioner claiming amongst other things attempted escapes showing Milat's X-rays with razor blades etc.

But if the truth be known and told Milat has self-harmed in custody on a number of occasions because of his mistreatment by the Department of Corrective Services who have had Milat in isolation for years.

Of course the brother's story is a beat up and he may be convinced opposed to his other siblings but I also smell a rat! The same rat Clive Small who has to hang on to the validity of his alleged findings that led to Milat being convicted of the murders.

Earlier this year, Ivan Milat's final appeal was rejected by the High Court and he has no prospect of ever being released.

Despite this, family members like Caroline Milat and friends are still campaigning for his freedom.

Why did it take them so long to get around to dealing with the 23-year-old case? Did they find a new way to solve crime? Or and easier way to set someone up for unsolved crime?

Civil libertarians condemn planned changes to prisoners' privacy rights The New South Wales Government is using a recent case involving [framed] serial killer Ivan Milat to justify its decision to remove the privacy rights of prisoners.

The man alleged to have murdered English tourist Peter Falconio has been acquitted of rape and abduction charges in the South Australian District Court.

Supreme Court rejects Nine appeal
CHANNEL Nine lost a Supreme Court appeal today to have a suppression order on details of the case of missing backpacker Peter Falconio lifted. The Full Bench of the NT Supreme Court today ruled Magistrate Alasdair McGregor had the power to make the order banning from publication some details of the case.

Innocent until proven guilty? Not in Australia's outback!
There is no way that Bradley John Murdoch can get a fair trial in the Northern Territory. The entire jury pool is already contaminated, the general public have accepted the verdict of the Northern Territory News and the NT Police State has turned on the cone of silence. Maybe some of the reporters might want to ask Director of Public Prosecutions Rex Wilde QC just how he is going to secure a conviction when a body has not been found. Surely the NT bureaucracy learnt from the Lindy Chamberlain case that it is not a good idea to jail someone for murder when you haven't got a body. Maybe they have the same people working on the case. The NT Police forensic team certainly do.

Taken "A Dingo Took My Baby!"
They were the words that Lindy Chamberlain had screamed out into the blackness of the cold night in a camping ground close to Ayers Rock, Central Australia, on the night of August 17, when she discovered that her nearly ten-week-old baby, Azaria had been taken by a dingo.

Man Says He Shot Dingo That Snatched Baby SYDNEY, Australia (July 5) - A distraught mother's scream 24 years ago that a dingo snatched her baby from a camp site near Ayers Rock in the Australian Outback ignited one of Australia's most enduring mysteries. An elderly man's claim that he retrieved the infant's bloodied body from the jaws of the wild dog has revived the case and - if true - could finally lead to the discovery of Azaria Chamberlain's body.
