Try and break the cycle man. Go cold turkey, no Janet for a week.
You could consider whether the 18 prosecutions by the rogue DPP are left under the carpet.*
The legal profession that wants to tell people how to vote is sure to, when it gets time.

* think the carpet the Lawyer X debacle has over it, the ACT version is more the size of a door mat.

Concern has been expressed by the ACT's Chief Police Officer that the fallout from the Lehrmann mistrial and board of inquiry controversy which followed may be a deterrent to other sexual assault victims to report, and has committed to further improve "the way police operate and conduct criminal investigations".

"I do not want the impact of this report to result in people not willing to come forward to police to report sexual assaults," Deputy Commissioner Neil Gaughan said in a statement issued today.

He also committed to working with the ACT government to "contribute to the complete government response, and following this, to implement the recommendations [of the review]".

The inquiry has made 10 recommendations which have all been supported by the ACT Government and which ACT Attorney General Shane Rattenbury has pledged would be fully implemented before the next territory election in October 2024.

Yeah it’s not like weird stuff has gone on throughout this entire debacle.

Just a series of coincidences. Totally normal.
The debacle evolved from a managed campaign that lost its way ....... it was supposed to be over, cash in bank, and the Lehrmann camp totally discredited.
But it hasnt gone according to plan with the original manager just one piece of the collateral damage.
Senator Russell next to serve.

Nah, someone is back in court tomorrow at Toowoomba.

An alleged repeat offender.
 
I wouldn't be the first to ask with the history, if Albrechtsen might have access to a stream of illegally hacked material. There should be an investigation imo.
Imagine if she was in receipt of things hacked by operatives from, with connections to, or funded by Nation State enemies of Australia?

At least someone is thinking of sexual assault victims
But I’d say, too late. a lot of damage has been done
 
Should be another big day for the Janet Albrechtsen community.

Thoughts and prayers!

The chaos of the Lehrmann trial demolishes another reputation​

A ‘lapse of judgment’ or partisan fog adds yet another embarrassing chapter to this endless legal saga.
MAEVE MCGREGOR

AUG 08, 2023

It’s no profound insight that for several months the bête noire of The Australian’s Janet Albrechtsen has been outgoing ACT Director of Public Prosecutions Shane Drumgold SC.

In recent days alone, she’s vaulted to the Churchillian, warning of the gathering of a “dark cloud” should the ACT government turn a “blind eye” to what, in her view, constitutes a possible attempt to pervert the course of justice. She’s wondered how it is the ACT government allowed itself to be “overrun by the most zealous members of the #MeToo movement”, w#metoo what “other ideological obsessions” had “infected” the justice system.

"She’s also attacked the integrity of News Corp colleague Samantha Maiden, suggesting her coverage of the Bruce Lehrmann rape allegation had descended into feminised “vigilante journalism”. "

And in a manner redolent of those who speak as though no-one else on the train can hear them, she surmised, without evidence, that “no doubt quite a few” of those who support victims of sexual assault would be given to believing that at least some of the self-evidently unethical decisions of Drumgold during the course of the Lehrmann rape trial were justified. “Nothing,” she warned, “will stop their campaign to right social wrongs by whatever means necessary.

It’s from this vantage point that Albrechtsen’s most recent portrait of the ACT justice system seeps into the absurd and plentiful plains of unreality. Lost in the thousands of words published is any credible reflection of how, for instance, the decision to publish the contents of Brittany Higgins’ private text messages might impugn the impartiality of The Australian or itself speak to serious issues within the justice system, never mind its chilling impact on victims of sexual assault.

Or how it is Albrechtsen’s views can be reconciled with the sobering reality the Sofronoff report did not, contrary to her analyses, find the prosecution of Lehrmann was improperly brought. And much less, that it found no evidence of “fundamental or grievous problems with the justice system” as opposed to “instances of poor individual behaviour”, as the territory’s Attorney-General Shane Rattenbury emphasised yesterday at the report’s public release.

A brilliant piece:

The extraordinary events involving Shane Drumgold, the Australian newspaper and the report itself bring into question our entire criminal justice system

In the aftermath of the Sofronoff inquiry my feeling is one of overwhelming sadness.

So much has gone wrong – with the police investigation, with the collection and retention of evidence, with the conduct of the trial. There have been multiple leaks of confidential medical and other records, even juror misconduct and an aborted trial. What else could go wrong?

As it turns out – plenty.

The only sadness should be that certain politicians and journalists used an alleged rape victim as a pawn to play political games and to further their careers.
And to be frank, some of the people at the Guardian are front and centre of that list.

Its amazing that the outrage is coming from the perspective that this is now being exposed and held up to scrutiny.
 


Please adjust your calendar for the next court date of August 23. "High-profile man" still trying to access phone messages from six months before he and the complainant met. I'm sure Janet Albrechtsen will explain why later.

Said 'high profile man' is also scheduled to give a follow up interview on 7 Spotlight this weekend.
