Jill Meagher murder: Sydney Road safety in spotlight

By CHRIS HINGSTON Oct. 9, 2012, midnight

A SAFETY audit of Sydney Road is slated to come before Moreland City council tonight, with more CCTV and better lighting around the strip to be considered.

It follows the emotional response to the death of Jill Meagher, a 29-year-old Irish national, who went missing from Sydney Road last month.

Coburg man Adrian Ernest Bayley, 41, is set to face the Melbourne Magistrates Court in January charged with her rape and murder.

March brings home sexual assault message

by Laura Edwards on October 10, 2012

“IT’S a fundamental human right to feel safe – people should be able to walk where they want,” says Chrystina Stanford.

While it may seem a simple message, Chrystina believes it can often be one of the most difficult to get across to the community – particularly where sexual assault is concerned.

Chrystina, an executive officer at the Canberra Rape Crisis Centre, says sexual assault is one of the most “hidden” crimes.

OCT 10



Jill Meagher’s Last Walk.

How could Jill Meagher have been set upon in Hope Street without anyone hearing her cries for help? Was her killer waiting in this laneway, where her bag was left behind, or did he sweep her into it? Although the building on the right is occupied, it’s not obvious from Hope Street that it is a residence.

Abusive partners face crackdown

October 10, 2012
Henrietta Cook

TOUGHER penalties for abusive men, relationship education in schools and intervention programs for violent adolescents are part of a Baillieu government bid to reduce family violence.

The state government yesterday launched an ambitious action plan to stamp out violence against women and children, with Premier Ted Baillieu paying tribute to Jill Meagher and Sargun Ragi.

''We can't [launch the plan] without reflecting on the unspeakable violence that has been perpetrated [on] women and also children in our own community, particularly in recent weeks,'' he said.

Women Need More Than Safe Streets

October 8, 2012

By Violeta Politoff

Safe public spaces have been in focus since the death of Jill Meagher but it’s usually more familiar dangers that threaten women. Violeta Politoff on what shapes community concern about violence against women

Australians have been deeply affected by death of Jill Meagher. Community reactions to this tragedy have been overwhelmingly caring and emotional; and the people of Melbourne have shown their unwavering support for Jill, her family and for the safety of women and girls in our communities.

The public outcry and media coverage of this case has held particular interest for me as I work researching media coverage of violence against women, and recently co-authored a report with Professor Jenny Morgan and published by VicHealth, on the past 20 years of coverage of the issue.

Witnessing the Jill Meagher case unfold, I could see that this tragedy had the power to bring Melbourne’s communities together over the issue of violence against women. But as the story developed it became clear that what happened to Jill wasn’t being linked to the broader issue of violence against women. Instead, personal safety has taken centre stage.

Suppression order sought in Meagher case

Updated: 18:22, Wednesday October 10, 2012

A lawyer for a Melbourne man charged with murdering ABC staffer Jill Meagher has applied to suppress his image.

Lawyer Helen Spowart told the Melbourne Magistrates Court on Wednesday there was material on social media websites that expressed hatred towards her client Adrian Ernest Bayley and speculated about him.

~Snipped~

Ms Spowart is also seeking to suppress certain information about Bayley.

'It is clear from this material that the accused is a target of intense and almost unprecedented attention, scrutiny and speculation as to his background,' she told the court.

Staff reporter
Herald Sun
October 11, 2012
12:00AM

A LAWYER for the suspect in the Jill Meagher murder case yesterday made a pioneering application to gag aspects of social media coverage.

Victoria Legal Aid lawyers acting for the man accused of raping and murdering Ms Meagher applied in court to ban material about him being featured on the internet.

A magistrate has adjourned a decision to today on whether to suppress the publication of images of Ms Meagher's accused rapist and murderer, Adrian Ernest Bayley, in any forum.

Bayley background suppression order

Updated: 16:32, Thursday October 11, 2012

A magistrate has granted a suppression order on information about the background of Jill Meagher's alleged killer.

But the magistrate refused an application for an order suppressing the image of Adrian Ernest Bayley.

Deputy Chief Magistrate Felicity Broughton said on the information before her, identity was not an issue in the case.

~Snipped~

Ms Broughton granted an order suppressing certain background information about Bayley until a committal mention on January 18.

Web gag on hateful Adrian Bayley material in Jill Meagher murder case

by: Paul Anderson | Herald Sun | October 11, 2012 4:27PM

A MAGISTRATE has today suppressed the publication of some information about the man accused of raping and murdering Jill Meagher but rejected an application to ban publication of his image.

In partly granting an application made on behalf of Adrian Ernest Bayley at Melbourne Magistrates' Court today, Deputy Chief Magistrate Felicity Broughton said in preliminary comments this afternoon that:

*The case had already attracted an extreme level of media and public interest.

US may hold key to fair trial in Meagher case

11 October, 2012 Leanne Mezrani

A legal academic has slammed claims that widespread social media coverage of Jill Meagher’s death will prevent her alleged killer from getting a fair trial – pointing to America’s jury selection process as a way to weed out juror bias.

Hugh Selby, an associate professor specialising in advocacy and court craft at Australian National University, told Lawyers Weekly that there is no evidence to support the claim that social media is influencing jurors “to such an extent that they can’t bring an open mind to court”. While he admitted that common law has not yet caught up with social media, he said that blaming social media for juror bias is “bullshit”.

Jill Meagher's accused murderer was warned of police
probe


by: Anthony Dowsley
Herald Sun
October 13, 2012
12:00AM

JILL Meagher's accused murderer was tipped off by a public official that he was under investigation as police closed in.

Adrian Ernest Bayley, 41, was told he was a suspect in a serious crime in the hours before he was arrested and while under surveillance.

Police will allege Ms Meagher was raped and strangled in a Brunswick laneway soon after she was filmed on CCTV.

~Snipped~

Prosecutors will also allege her killer then left the scene and returned later to dispose of her body in Gisborne South.

~Snipped~

As part of routine procedure, Mr Bayley's DNA is being cross-referenced with samples taken from numerous sexual assault victims across the state.

Police considered a review into whether the tip-off by the public official, which had the potential to obstruct the investigation, amounted to a serious breach. But after inquiries they decided not to take the matter further.

Night rally wants to reclaim road

DateOctober 15, 2012
Damien Murphy

ORGANISERS of Reclaim the Night want to march down streets in the city instead of footpaths as participatory numbers swell following Jill Meagher's death.

Kate O'Brien, of the University of Sydney's Reclaim the Night organising committee, expected a record turnout for the protest against rape and sexual violence on Sunday, October 28.

''We've already got more than 800 people saying they will march on Facebook,'' Ms O'Brien said. ''That's unprecedented.''

She said the spontaneous reaction by more than 30,000 Melburnians on September 30, who walked down Sydney Road in Brunswick to mourn Ms Meagher, showed how deep the issue ran through society.

Jill Meagher Murder Case: Who Tipped off Accused Adrian Ernest Bayley?

By Arlene Paredes | October 15, 2012 3:34 PM EST

Adrian Ernest Bayley, accused murderer in the Jill Meagher Brunswick case, has reportedly been tipped off that police was looking into his activities. He was also allegedly warned that his arrest could be imminent.

~Snipped~

In a Herald Sun report, police had considered looking into an allegation that Bayley was tipped off by a public official hours prior to his arrest. However, The Australian noted no progress was made in the investigation.

In a situation like this, the Australian public is expected to react suspiciously.

Who is the public official who tipped off Bayley?

No authority has denied that the prime suspect in the Meagher murder case had been tipped off before he was arrested. But why did police authorities decide to not look further? Who are they protecting?

Hinch reveals where the person who tipped off Adrian Bayley works

Posted by: Derryn Hinch | 15 October, 2012 - 4:09 PM

~Snipped~

I suspect your reaction was similar to mine: How the hell could that happen? And the immediate follow-up question: Who was it? Who did it? And why?

Who in their right mind would tell a person that he was a suspect over the abduction and murder of Jill Meagher while he was under Police surveillance?

For legal reasons, which will become apparent after this trial is over, I have to withhold some details but I can tell you that this person works for the Justice Department.

I would hope that the Premier of this state and the Police Commissioner and the Police Minister have been asking a lot of pertinent questions since this story broke.

I would hope the employee involved has at least been stood down pending a full investigation.

Meagher memorial plan divides town

A PROPOSAL to plant a memorial tree at the site Jill Meagher's body was discovered has divided the close-knit Gisborne South community.

Backers say a flowering tree would be a fitting tribute to Ms Meagher's memory, but opponents fear a permanent memorial would draw too much traffic to the area. The local council said last night it would only allow the proposed memorial to proceed if Ms Meagher's Perth-based parents were in favour of it.

Diggers Rest man caring for Jill Meagher site

The memorial plaque at the Toolern Vale site.

A DIGGERS Rest man has visited the roadside site where Jill Meagher’s body was found every day, vowing to keep the memorial in order.

Bruce Wood, who does not have a personal connection with Ms Meagher or her family, said he could not explain why her death had hit him so hard.

"I'm here every day, keeping the site tidy," he said.

"Right from the start I just felt like I should look after the place."

And now Mr Wood wants to plant a tree as a lasting memorial to Ms Meagher at the Toolern Vale site.

Wake up Facebook!

Posted by: Ned Franklin | 17 October, 2012 - 10:04 AM

Neil Mitchell has again attacked the accountability of American social media giant Facebook after discovering a hate page celebrating the violent death of ABC employee Jill Meagher.

The disgusting page contains offensive statements such as:

"Thinking about my life, I deserved to die, I was a horrible b**ch anyway."

Dozens of complaints have been sent to Facebook, but the company refuse to act upon anything that doesn't breach their terms and conditions.

Facebook typically responds with an automated message: "We do not remove distasteful content," it says.

Women are haunted by questions we now have to ask after Jill Meagher's death

Amber Petty From:

There are lingering safety doubts in areas like Sydney Rd, Brunswick, the Melbourne suburb where Jill Meagher was abducted in the early hours of the morning. Picture: Jason Edwards Source: Herald Sun

AMBER Petty says few women won't have thought they easily could have been in Jill Meagher's shoes.

---------

I DON'T think I'd be alone in saying that the aftermath of the Jill Meagher rape and murder has left a deep impression on me that I feel sure won't fade for a long time. If ever.

There are few of us women who haven't had the conversation recently about "that could have been me" or "that could have been you".

Anyone who's been out late, had a few drinks and then made their own way home without a friendly escort has felt the shudder of what-ifs?

Although we all wish from the very core of our hearts that Jill Meagher was still alive, the way to really honour this young woman violently robbed of her life is to forever remember her "what-ifs" so we protect ourselves from our own.

Take back the night

By JOANNE McCARTHY Oct. 20, 2012, 4 a.m.

THE man who raped and murdered Carolyn Mary O’Brien in 1986 was short.
See your ad hereWhen victims of crime advocate Robyn Cotterell-Jones sat opposite him a few years ago at a restorative justice conference, it was his ordinariness that struck her.

He was a rapist and murderer, but if he had walked past her in the street she wouldn’t have looked twice. That thought struck her again a few weeks ago when Melbourne woman Jill Meagher’s body was found, and a man was charged with her rape and murder.

He was walking down the street when he chanced on Jill Meagher and spoke with her. And within a short time she was dead.

The shock of the Jill Meagher case brought thousands of Victorians into the street to march in protest about violence against women.

Around 5000 people have marched against "victim blaming" in a Reclaim the Night rally, following the alleged abduction and murder of Melbourne woman Jill Meagher.

Protesters gathered on the corner of Barkly Street in Brunswick at 7pm tonight.

Organiser Natalie Pestana told The Age she wanted to counter the notion that women bear some responsibility for preventing harassment and sexual assault.

"Women grow up with a different set of rules," she said.

"We're taught to keep a key between our fingers in case we're attacked and check the back seat of our car. These are things that guys just aren't made to do.

"We're pissed off and annoyed that women are being blamed when they're the victim of an assault."

The Jill Meagher case and the suppressed suppression order

The Melbourne Magistrates Court has reportedly made an order prohibiting publication of material about Adrian Bayley until 18 January 2013, and requiring any negative material about him on the internet to be taken down. Suppression orders aren’t particularly outrageous, but this one’s a bit odd.

Reclaim The Night

By Amanda Whitley — October 21, 2012

In the wake of Jill Meagher’s murder, we published this article by Kaylia Payne. Kaylia wrote:

The ACT Women’s Services Network is raising awareness of sexual violence through Reclaim the Night (RTN), an annual global protest organised by women against sexual violence. From 6.30pm this Friday 26 October, women and the men who support them will gather in Garema Place to march in solidarity. They will demand the right to live free from the fear and reality of sexual violence in our community, and assert our right to move equally through public spaces.

The night still needs reclaiming

October 23, 2012

Opinion

Jenna Price

This is for Tegan and for Cassie. It is for Anita and Janine. For Allison. For Sian. For Ebony.

For all the women who never came home. And for the women who came home bruised and beaten, battered and raped.

It makes me furious to hear some men say that a woman will always be an object if she goes alone to a bar, particularly if there are footballers in the bar.

It is for Tegan, who was 14; for Cassie, who was 13. They survived, they testified.

And now it is for Jill, who never had the chance. Jill Meagher was allegedly sexually assaulted and murdered in Melbourne late last month and it was exactly as we feared.

Violent death prompts restraining order rethink

By Guy Stayner
Updated 6 hours 26 minutes ago

(VIDEO)

Last month, around the same time Australians were horrified by the murder of Melbourne woman Jill Meagher, another woman was also killed in the city.

But her death went largely unnoticed.

Sargun Ragi, 23, appeared in court shortly before her death to extend a restraining order against her husband, Avjit Singh.

She was initially too scared to be in the same courtroom as him.

Magistrate John O'Callaghan expressed his concern at the time.

"I'm a bit concerned that she's not in court. I mean, I can understand people being scared of someone, but we've got police protection here," he said.

Mr Singh had been banned from any contact with his wife but had breached the restraining order eight times in three weeks.

Violence against women: our hidden shame

25 October 2012

KATIE O'BYRNE

Public grief for Jill Meagher was real and raw, but our action on violence against women is haphazard, erratically funded and all but entirely ignored, writes Katie O'Byrne.

On September 25, 2012, barely two days before Jill Meagher's body was discovered in its lonely resting place, it was announced that all Australian governments had finally agreed to an implementation plan for the first stage of the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010-2022.

Amidst the public anguish for a young woman snatched savagely away, there was virtually no coverage of this announcement in the mainstream media. As politicians squabble about sexism in modern Australia, we should be reminded that action on violence against women - the most insidious form of misogyny and gender discrimination - must be more visible and better-coordinated.

Jill Meagher accused treated for self-inflicted wounds

The Irish Times - Monday, October 29, 2012
CONOR LALLY, Crime Correspondent

A MAN charged with the rape and murder in Australia last month of Irishwoman Jill Meagher is believed to have tried to take his own life in prison and has undergone emergency surgery for self-inflicted wounds.

Adrian Ernest Bayley (41) was taken by ambulance yesterday morning from Melbourne Assessment Prison in Victoria.

He was brought to St Vincent’s Hospital in Fitzroy, Melbourne, where he has undergone emergency surgery and was recovering in hospital today.

The Australian department of justice confirmed a prisoner had been taken from the prison for treatment but the nature of the injuries was not stated.

Mr Bayley, from Coburg in Melbourne, was being held in custody at the maximum-security prison where he was found bleeding from extensive wounds on Sunday morning local time.

Man accused of Jill Meagher murder has emergency surgery after suicide attempt

By Breda Heffernan
Monday October 29 2012

THE family of Jill Meagher have said they want to see the man accused of her rape and murder stand trial after he made an apparent suicide attempt while on remand in prison.

~Snipped~

Speaking from his home in Drogheda, Co Louth, Ms Meagher's uncle, Michael McKeon, said the family wanted to see Mr Bayley stand trial.

"We're following the judicial process in Australia to see the man receive a trial," he said.

Mr McKeon indicated he did not want to comment further in case anything he said might prejudice the criminal trial.

App new weapon against assaults

November 14, 2012
Beau Donelly

A FREE app, inspired by the death of Jill Meagher, that uses GPS technology to report sexual assaults will be up and running within months, according to the state's leading body against abuse.

The Centre Against Sexual Assault expects the app will help lower barriers for assaulted women who do not want to report incidents.

The head of the south-east branch of CASA, Carolyn Worth, said the agency was developing the app - the first of its kind in Australia - to record patterns of crime against women. The idea for the app came after the death of 29-year-old Irish national Jillian Meagher in September.

"Adrian Ernest Bayley, 41, appeared in Melbourne Magistrates' Court via video link for a short committal mention at noon today, where it was confirmed a two-day committal was listed for March 12 and 13."

___________

COMMITAL HEARINGS

A committal hearing is a preliminary hearing held in the Magistrates Court to determine whether there is sufficient evidence for an accused person to stand trial in a higher court on a serious (“indictable”) offence.

The committal hearing is the most common procedure by which criminal cases are transferred from the Magistrates Court (where all cases start) to the appropriate higher court (the District Court or Supreme Court, as the case may be). It is not always the case that people charged with indictable offences go through a committal hearing however. For example, an accused person can elect to bypass a committal hearing and proceed straight to the higher court by requesting an “ex-officio indictment” from the prosecuting authorities. (Such a course is usually only adopted though where the person charged wishes to plead guilty without challenging the prosecution allegations.)

Most cases however proceed through the Magistrates Court and into the higher courts by way of a committal hearing. A committal can generally take two forms, either a “full hand up” committal or a committal involving evidence from some or all prosecution witnesses. Either way, the matter proceeds before a Magistrate acting alone.
