SECURING ACCOUNTABILITY FOR THE MULLALEY FAMILY
In May and July 2022, George Newhouse, Karina Hawtrey, Melissa Razuki and Tasma Walton from the NJP joined the Mullaley family in Perth to meet parliamentarians and receive the WA Government’s apology and pardon.
Despite being the victims of a brutal assault and abduction that led to the murder of their beloved Baby Charlie, our clients were wrongly arrested by the WA Police, and they were let down by the official investigation into Baby Charlie’s death.
After five years of fighting for justice with the Mullaley family, we secured accountability from WA Police and a formal apology and pardon from the WA Attorney General.
“We are forever grateful and cannot find the words to thank the team for their many hours of work. We needed a hero – the National Justice Project stepped up.”
“The team maintained constant pressure on the WA Government to get Baby Charlie’s story told in its full truth. We never gave up, and neither did the National Justice Project.”
– Kathleen Pinkerton, Aunt of Baby Charlie
