QUEENSLAND parliament’s Speaker Mike Reynolds will provide a character reference in a Townsville court today for convicted Palm Island rioter Lex Wotton, who is due to be sentenced for his role in riots on Palm Island a week after Mulrunji Doomadgee died.
Wotton’s lawyer Stewart Levitt said yesterday his client would appeal against his conviction, regardless of today’s sentence.
He also said;
“In the new age of Obama, it will be interesting to see how this trial will be viewed given the changing political landscape.”
The Messiah is here, a new millennium has dawned before it’s time!
