Injustice anywhere
is a threat to justice everywhere.

Education is the core of improvement. Injustice can be defeated with knowledge, wisdom and honour.

Injustice & Law

Injustice can come from the law itself. Read articles and watch interviews discussing challenges in the law.

Cases of Miscarriage

Follow cases involving a miscarriage of justice, monitor progress and even help them along.

Justice Only Works if it is Fair

Justice requires that it be applied fairly and evenly but history tells us this has rarely been the case.  Injustice occurs when an unjust decision is made. It is a tragedy when this occurs because of an honest mistake, but it is criminal when it is wilful.

Knowledge Protects Everyone

Knowledge concentrated with the political and legal elite increases the risk of injustice. 

Being informed, being aware, & being active helps protect you and those around you from injustice.

Our Mission

Blackstone’s ratio says, “It is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer.”

We believe injustice is a terrible outcome and in a civilised society, there is a duty to do everything possible to ensure it is avoided in the first place, and remedied when it does occur.  There can be no doubt about the extent of the harm a miscarriage of justice can cause.

We will be seeking to provide a range of resources for anyone who is interested in issues surrounding injustice:

For Professionals

Lawyers are closely linked to the justice system, the interface where injustice is most likely to occur. Other professionals include experts whose opinions are sought by the court and can strongly influence the courts’ decisions.  Politicians and political advisors also have a profound impact on injustice, both through the development of policy and in situations where politicians have a capacity to influence processes and decisions.

Professionals will find an expanding resource to help them develop a broader understanding of injustice, how it impacts daily practice and how it can be reduced and reversed. 

For the Broad Public

For most people, interactions with the law can be overwhelming.  If you, or someone you know is involved with an injustice or a serious miscarriage, it feels insurmountable.  While some of our resources are targeted to professionals, we try to make it readable for the uninitiated and have additional content that will be more suited to your needs.


We follow and present information about cases where  injustice is occurring. We may be involved in some, but not others.  These cases are presented and updated to keep you informed and we hope that raising their profile will help those involved and the people diligently working to advance these cases to the court, politicians and the public.

We also present some historical cases.  Some of these represent situations where the miscarriage was ultimately corrected, as much as it can be, and others where the  fight was stopped for some other reason.

Active Cases

Kathleen Folbigg

In 2003, Kathleen Folbigg was convicted of killing her four children over a period of 10 years. Despite natural causes of death given for Caleb, Patrick, Sarah and Laura Folbigg, Ms Folbigg was convicted of smothering them to death. The basis for her convictions were the journals she wrote in during the 10-year period; they were used as evidence to suggest she admitted killing her children. Ms Folbigg has been unsuccessful in overturning her convictions and has served 18 years in prison. In combination with leading forensic pathologists concluding natural causes of death for each of the children, new genetics evidence shows the infants had genetic defects that can explain further how they died. For the first time, Ms Folbigg’s journals are now being examined by experts who consider them to be unremarkable and contrary to the way in which they have been interpreted by the law to date.

There was reasonable doubt at the time of the conviction, now there is expert evidence that disproves murder.  It is time the conviction is overturned and she is freed. 

Mark Basa

In 2006, at the age of 15, Mark Basa was convicted of killing another young man in a fight involving fifteen youths.  He served his sentence but was then moved to the Villawood Detention centre where he has remained for three and a half years awaiting deportation to PNG. 

He has been in Australia since he was a child,his family were given protection and are now themselves Australian citizens living in Australia. He requires daily medication to keep him alive for a pancreatic disorder that started during his incarceration; this medication is not available in PNG. While the minister has deemed that he should be deported the Federal Court has found in favour of Mark, but the minister is standing firm and he has now been transported from the Villawood Detention Centre to Perth.  

He has served his time and if he is deported he will die.  His deportation should be stopped and he should be released to the care of his family.

David Harris

In 2019, David Harris died alone in his home and was not found for two months.  He suffered the devastating and debilitating effects of schizophrenia for most of his adult life.  He was admitted to hospital 29 times during his lifetime for acute episodes of illness and was supported in the community by Mental Health Teams.  However, as time marched on, MHT were defunded and with the advent of the NDIS his care became increasingly fractured until it ultimately failed completely.  

He failed to attend a meeting with his NDIS provider to discuss a new plan.  As a result, he was discharged from the service and he passed away in his home, presumably as a result of neglect, and was not discovered for over two months.

David’s life was seriously hampered by a terrible disease that was completely beyond his control and he depended on the services of community psychiatry and the NDIS provider.  They failed him and he died.  A coroners inquest is afoot and his sister is keen to ensure that this does not happen to other patients in the future.

Historical Cases

Lindy Chamberlain

In 1982, Lindy Chamberlain was convicted of killing her nine-week old daughter, Azaria, two years earlier on a camping trip to Ayres Rock (now known as Uluru).  The case captivated the nation and at the time was one of the most publicised murder trials the country had ever seen.  Everyone had an opinion and, the popular opinion was against Lindy.  Lindy and her husband, Michael, maintained that Azaria had been taken by a dingo while the prosecution presented a case that was circumstantial and relied on forensic evidence.  Lindy was found guilty of murder and given a life sentence while her husband was found guilty of being an accessory after the fact and received an eighteen month suspended sentence.

The reality was that the the forensic evidence was seriously flawed and the Chamberlains were acquitted in 1988.  Later, in 2012, a further inquest found that Azaria had been taken and killed by a dingo. 

Colin Ross

In 1922, Colin Ross was convicted of murdering a 13 year old girl who had been found raped and strangled in a laneway near the saloon Ross managed.  The case attracted publicity and the police were accused of not doing enough.  In the shadow of this pressure, the police soon settled on Ross as their prime suspect even though there was no evidence apart their former dislike of Ross relating to other criminal activity in his hotel.  He was convicted on the basis of a statement by another prisoner, and the statement of a prostitute and fortune teller who shared the significant reward money.  In spite of efforts to overturn the conviction, he was executed less than 5 months after the murder.

In 2008, Ross was granted a posthumous pardon after an investigator uncovered evidence that the statements supporting Ross had been suppressed and modern forensic review proved the evidence used at the time was flawed.
